A great fun afternoon, from a kind and friendly and very accommodating host - we were over an hour late! Able to take away our creations too!

What a quaint little set up. Gaynor was very attentive and super experienced. We made our own pottery item on the wheel then our own hand-made model of choice. Definitely a must do for anyone wanting to go back in time because the last time my hubby and i ventured in clay was in the 80s and 90s. Loved it 👍The host Gaynor also offers airbnb at the same location, it is tranquil, rustic and set in beautiful rural surroundings in the North Yorkshure Moors. Highly reccomend

We really enjoyed the pottery experience with Gaynor. She is a very friendly host and she knows her subject very well. We will definitely come back if we are visiting the area again!

Myself and my husband really enjoyed our experience. We have never used a potter's wheel before so it was a new experience and while it took some getting used to we enjoyed it all the same. We also got to keep all the pots that we made. It was something different and extremely enjoyable.

Really great fun and relaxing. Took 2 kids, aged 11 and 9 and they created some great pots. Gaynor was very calm and supportive and gave them clay to be creative with while my husband and I had a go. We also had a lovely lunch in the cafe next door in a glorious location. Highly recommended activity.

Definitely a must do. Gaynor really went out of her way to make our experience unique. We didn’t feel rushed, having never done this before. I would absolutely try it again. Thank you so much
