I purchased a Groupon voucher a few months ago for a pot throwing experience at Manifold Craft Barn. Me and the other half went today and I can honestly say we didn't know what to expect.
We had a really good morning, making things with clay. The pot throwing was real fun and something that we both would like to try again.
The owners were very knowledgable and passionate about what they did, and it was lovely to see. And to top it off the location can only be described as idyllic.
Would definitely recommend. Thank you for a fun morning, learning something new.

A Truly Memorable Hen Do!
Aug 2016 • Friends
I visited Manifold Craft Barn for a Hen Do and I can’t review it highly enough! I arranged the activities with Michelle and she made it really easy right from the beginning. From the moment you drive up you realise it is somewhere special, the countryside surrounding it is beautiful (some lovely walks too). Jason and Michelle made us feel so welcome, we undertook a pottery throwing and painting class…it was such a laugh but also really relaxing! We all had a go throwing on the wheel, Jason was such a good teacher and amazingly patient with us all; we all came out with some beautiful pots; I actually achieved more than I did on a 10 week evening class! We also all got to paint our own pot whilst a few were throwing on the wheel. The class was well structured and everyone really enjoyed themselves, all the Hens were so impressed with the value for money too. The Cakes were also yummy! Thank you both so much for a wonderful, memorable afternoon, keep up the good work.

Hen Party Pottery Class
Aug 2016 • Friends
16 of us took part in a pottery class where we attempted to make a bowl as well as paint something. It was such good fun for a morning activity especially since the weather wasn't the best. There was also the option to have afternoon tea which was amazing. The cakes and brownies were delicious. The staff that worked there were also super friendly and helpful

Drove over today (28th August). Checked website and Facebook before travelling (implied open on a Sunday) and found it closed. Hungry travellers and disappointed wannabe pot painters 😕

Sorry we were not able to accommodate you at the barn. We are a small family business who always offer a warm welcome and have had only positive reviews over the years - so we were really shocked to see such negative comments. Ironically, the Craft Barn was not closed on the day you visited, but open for appointments, as the 'opening times' section on our website clearly stated. Our Facebook page doesn't contain opening times. As no one had booked in at the time you arrived, we had locked the customer door but we're working close by. There was even a mobile number to call for any unexpected visitors. If you had called this we would have welcomed you into the barn within seconds. Other customers did this on the day you visited and we happily opened for them. So therefore we think your one star review is harsh because a) our website openings times stated open for appointments only, and b) you didn't experience the great service we offer.

Arty afternoon for all ages to enjoy!
Nov 2015 • Family
Brilliant afternoon here with my mum, niece and nephews.
Spent a couple of hours making deco patch animals and Christmas decorations, enjoyed by all (3,5,6,22 and 56 year olds!)
Really simple but effective ripping the coloured paper and sticking it to the animal when it's dried it gives a lovely shine and looks great. We all loved making them, will definitely be coming back to make more soon.
Ed was brilliant, so friendly and welcoming. Enjoyed looking at the others pictures in the gallery and had a lovely hot chocolate when we had finished the deco patch.
Definitely worth a visit

Lovely afternoon at Manifold Craft Barn.

What a fantastic host! Ed made the visit easy to book and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

There was a large range of beautiful pottery to choose from and a good selection of paints. Ed guided us through the process and had a fab buffet waiting for us at the end.

Would recommend to families, couples or as a group activity. Can't wait to see the finished products out of the kiln now!!

Ed really makes you feel welcome and gives really clear guidance on how to get the desired effect on your chosen piece of china. I cannot wait to get my cup back from the kiln in 3 weeks time!

Visit Ed and get creative. Home made cakes, tea and the papers available as the kids get stuck in to pottery painting or decopatch, parties catered for. Highly recommended.

Well worth a visit
Apr 2014 • Family
Very pleasant morning spent here. We were treated to a tour of some animals - rabbits, lambs, which the children thoroughly enjoyed. We then moved in to the craft studio itself where the children had a great time ceramic painting. The proprietor was very pleasant and helpful, and the adults got to relax over a coffee and cake. The painted items were professionally kiln fired and available for us to collect before the end of our holiday.
