Eastnor pottery trip advisor travellers choice award

jon williams and sarah monk eastnor pottery travellers choice award

Thank you to everybody who has taken the time to review us on all platforms, you are AWESOME!! Over 400 heart warming reviews on Trip Advisor and counting!

Please check out all the lovely things people are saying about us on our tripadvisor listing. In the meantime here’s a few recent glowing recommendations:

“We came for a 2-day weekend course in July and had a fantastic time. The whole weekend was really relaxing and the tution was marvellous. I just wish I could have spent more time! All 3 of us (myself, my son Max and my friend Rachel) do want to come back. I thoroughly recommend this course whether you’re a beginner or not.” Rebecca

Just from reading reviews, I had high expectations for this experience and it certainly lived up to them. My husband and I loved it. Sarah was a great teacher giving us the right balance of clear instruction & expectation, acceptance & encouragement of a novice’s attempts, mixed in with lots of laughter! For someone who failed their pottery GCSE back in the day, I was delighted with my pot and definitely want to do some more. We would certainly encourage anyone else to have a go!” Getaway559539

“I honestly can’t rate this experience highly enough! I took part in the hen do experience, and was dubious that the day would be worth the cost, but it was worth every penny. The morning was spent learning how to use the potter’s wheel (a childhood ambition realised) and we were all able to have as many goes as we wished (although I could quite happily have sat there all day, and the next), and in the afternoon gave our creative sides free rein, learning how to make and paint coil pots. Jon was patient and encouraging, an excellent tutor. I now want to be a potter!” missapples0805

Thanks for spending your hen party celebrations with us Laura – we loved working with you all.

Although we didn’t actually meet your lovely husband to be, I think we now have a good idea what he looks like!

A beautiful decanter & goblets made on our Potter’s Wheel Weekend Course.

Matt made the amazing ‘splatter’ jug and Emma was responsible for the beautiful terracotta goblets – Teamwork makes the dream work!

Emma and Matt are regulars on our weekend events and in a very short space of time have acquired some mighty fine pottery skills. Well done you two!
