An original and fascinating birthday treat from my daughter. A warm welcome, lovely surroundings, and great fun learning pottery basics. Can't wait to go back and collect my pots! Many thanks to Lee and his Mum for a great experience.

Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon in beautiful countryside. Lee and Cathy make welcoming and professional teachers. Can’t believe I made 8 pots from never having thrown clay before I’m just a few hours. A great afternoon. I’ll be back. Thank you.

We had an afternoon taster session at Bentham pottery and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lee is a very good teacher - we all managed to produce a pot on the wheel and a hand built pot. It was great fun and we would highly recommend it!

I don’t normally write reviews but felt I had to champion this place. Took my boyfriend for his late 30th birthday, he’s not that into arts and crafts but he loved it! Lee and his mum were so friendly and such good teachers. Can’t wait...More

Lee and his mum run a real working pottery which in itself is an education. On top of this, Lee is a brilliant teacher and under his guidance, my throwing skills have improved considerably. As a caravanner I was able to stay onsite and really...More

I bought this half day pottery wheel taster for my wife's birthday, we had a great time with Lee, it was a really good morning tat the pottery being introduced to the basics. And you get to keep 2 of the things you made!

A full day’s tuition with Lee coming to terms with the mysterious combination of clay, water, and potter’s wheel far exceeded our expectations. Lee’s patient teaching also allowed to exceed our limited ambitions and create something more complex than an egg cup or saucer. Quite...More
