I had a lovely morning with my boyfriend at Tarka Pottery. I had booked a two-hour throwing session for his birthday and we both loved it. Jax and the team were so welcoming and really knowledgeable, if we're in the area again we'll definitely return.

My daughter and I enjoyed our day at the pottery, we spent the morning working on the potters wheel and the afternoon making some textured pots in a mould. We were complete beginners but Jax was patience itself giving us confidence to have a go.More
