Watching the potters at work was very interesting and the gift shop is lovely. Some reviews refer to a self-guided tour. As part of a bus tour, we had the benefit of a guided tour which explained the process.

We didn't have time to watch the potters at work but the showroom is well stocked. It's a bit "fancier" since our last visit a decade ago, but I managed to find a great mug.

Very good stock and inventory of pottery. The staff were nice and it was fun to browse. They offered to give us a tour of the factory but we were running low on time. Will definitely be back!

Since we were in Bennington, why not stop in and check out Bennington Potters. The wife loved the store, then we checked out the shop and watched some of the potters at work on the machines. Very cool to see how it all comes together....More

Stopped here when in town for the big summer craft festival, the works are very nice but it is not a place to find bargains. Nice place to stop if you like pottery.

Hi Andrew, We do not offer any option where you would be able to paint your own pottery. If you are in the area stop in though to see the Potters making our pottery, and check out the Store here at Potters Yard!
