I spent a great afternoon with my daughter here. It is a great way to do something with your child where you can make memories creating something. The staff are welcoming and take the time to help and assist you and you child have a great time. There is food and drinks if you require them.

Our Grandaugter loved i!

Day out with Isabelle as she was on holiday and the weather not brilliant. Came across the crafty potters website. Belly absolutely loved it, staff are amazing very friendly too. Lovely experience. Isabelle came out singing and dancing after painting a large unicorn, We pick it up next week, definitely Recommend.

It's great fun for a day out with nans and grandads. We never ever see my mum and dad so we was looking for something to do what my mum would like and my dad plus my husband and the kids so we was driving past this pottery cafe what sounded like fun however we did not think it was going to be anything great but it sounded like fun so we went in and it was great fun.
