We brought our daughter and her 2 children to paint pots. There was a lot of choice, but the pots were very expensive. Our grandson painted a car, and we left it to be glazed and fired. It looked great when I collected it the...More

Cute little place. We chose our ceramic pots and then spent a couple of hours painting and decorating them. The staff were lovely and friendly, giving us tips and advice on the best paints to use and how they change colour when in the ovens....More

Had a wonderful afternoon with my 4 year old. Relaxed environment and friendly staff. A good choice of pottery to paint. The space is cosy but this is part of the charm. I'd definitely recommend booking to avoid disappointment. Potentially quite pricy for more than...More

We had a wonderful party at Emily's. The staff were lovely. The girl running our party learned all the children's names, she kept the children entertained and was friendly and fun. I would heartily recommend.

It seems that the answers to thcome negative feedback is just excuses. Most of her excuses are "it says on our website" "it says on our social media" "our prices are fair" 1- I asked the staff for new paintbrushes they said they have none. I asked for a ruler and a pencil they had none so please don't make out on here that you do offer more. 2 - I have been to at least 4 other paint pottery places in manchester all which are cheaper with plenty more choise of pots- maybe all your pots weren't out but your staff said they were. 3- the steps are extremely steep, I didn't think this would concern people but I can understand people commenting on it. Maybe just apologise and not mak excuses. 4- I have been twice and all the staff have been friendly except for one who I now assume is Emily who is also commenting on this post. 5- you are also one of the only places that throw out people pottery if they don't collect after a week.
