  • As my friend and I left our pottery wheel taster session we both looked at each other and exclaimed ‘I LOVED that’!! Not knowing what to expect I assumed I’d be terrible and be lucky to end up with a wonky little pot or something but with Stu’s expert and friendly guidance we all made several things and I loved them all! The studio was beautiful with lots of inspiration displayed all around us. Our group were very soon chatting and laughing together and everyone had such a good time. I’m sure there was a great deal of behind the scenes preparation which meant there was a plentiful supply of clay ready to go and as soon as we’d finished one piece we were on to another one and I was amazed at how many we made in a couple of fun packed hours. Would love to return and I’ve been recommending Stu Pots Pottery Studio to everyone! Can’t wait to see the fired results! Thank you so much for a fabulous experience!

  • AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Bought a gift voucher for my friend and so glad I got me one too. Such a fun morning. Stu and his entire family were super welcoming, including Ted and Burt 😍 anybody who has anxiety, do not stress! Stu is so friendly and genuinely lovely, you'll feel at ease immediately. Lots of humour, fun learning and just all round great. The cost too is incredible considering the time your getting, the pots you make and the effort that goes into them after you've left! Thank you Stu for a wonderful experience. We will be back 🙌 P.s. anyone looking to buy someone a unique gift-get a gift voucher for the two hour taster session!

  • I attended my first pottery class today wow 🤩 what an amazing afternoon. Great fun highly recommended. Stu is absolutely brilliant teacher so helpful and supportive. As a newbie with Stu help managed to create and complete three unique pieces of pottery which I’m thrilled with. If you’ve always wanted to have a go Stu Pots is the ideal class to attend. He is a credit to the Pottery world. Thank you, Stu, for making my experience so memorable.

  • I cannot wait to go back again and would thoroughly recommend anyone wanting to try something fun and different to go.... guarantee you will have a brilliant time 💯👍 informative introduction talk. I even managed to make a bowl, although slightly wobbly. Stu has a wonderful studio in lovely surroundings which was very comfortable, as a group of eight we had plenty of room. I would highly recommend the two-hour taster session, A+.
