Great Taster Throwing
Sep 2020
We visited The Pottery Experience for the Throwing Taster Session. I'd booked during online via the website and the communication from Anna over email was fantastic. She was very friendly and made sure we had all of the information we needed prior to our session.
The session itself was very enjoyable and we were all guided through it and given tips on where we could improve but were allowed to use our own creative flair.
We really enjoyed our session and are looking forward to going back to paint our pots soon. Thank you for a really enjoyable experience.

Brilliant, comforting.

I went to the pottery experience with my partner as something different to do and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I am currently heavily pregnant and they were very welcoming and were congratulating us and asked if I needed anything or if there was anything they could do to make my experience comfortable (such as a better chair) the clay making class was great and brilliant for social distancing and everyone kept their masks on unless they needed a drink. Couldn’t recommend more!

Brilliant social distancing birthday present and very helpful staff
Jul 2020 • Solo
Got an at home pottery kit for a birthday gift for a family member and they absolutely loved it, the staff were so helpful in sorting it out and adding a birthday note on the bag. Will definitely be heading for a class there when they reopen to the public.

Don’t need to be an artist

Fun activity for rainy days, definitely don’t need to be an artist. Lots of students there. Food and drinks are overpriced but you don’t have to get anything. Really good finish to all of the plates once they were fired. Will be going back!

Brilliant experience
Feb 2020
This was such a fun experience and would highly recommend to those who have never done it before and want to try something new! Ollie was fabulous, so helpful and done a demonstration before hand. We were in just under 2 hours and had alot of fun between us, it was chilled out and not at all serious, which is what we are about, nothing worse when you feel under pressure or judged. I think it was about £30pp and we have to go back in 2 weeks to paint our master pieces!

The most peaceful, creative nook in Newcastle
Jan 2020
Hazel and the entire team at The Pottery Experience are such lovely, creative folk, who are very generous with their time.
We booked the make and paint package and all came out with two gorgeously unique bowls each thanks to brilliant, clear instruction from Ollie.
The atmosphere is delightful, with classical music in the background and the option to bring your own wine.
Fantastic value for money, and definitely a recommendation I've been giving to all my friends!
Thank you so much for such a special 21st Birthday!

What a wonderful place!
Jan 2020
So glad we went here today, for a team-building activity for our young team of youthwork trainees. Hazel was really kind to accommodate us at short notice and although the group weren't confident initially, she was patient and encouraging and we had a great time painting cups and throwing pots. It was a really relaxing experience in a lovely environment -very chilled out - and everyone is super excited to see their finished products after they've been fired! Thank you so much!
