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!

Sorry for the delayed response. We specialise in teaching people how to throw on a pottery wheel. I’ve not taught any handbuilding for quite a few years now.
