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.

During this self-guided tour, visitors have an opportunity to visit with the potters and ask questions about their work. The gift shop is absolutely fabulous, offering a wide variety of items made by the potters as well as numerous other items.

I sometimes make a trip to Bennington just to visit this factory and shop. There are always new pieces on display as well as seasonal and holiday specials and seconds on sale. A fun place to be.

Long established pottery, with several different patterns. The shop also offers prepared foods like maple syrup and jellies and jams. Wide selection of housewares.

Some of the dinnerware was pretty but the price was too high compared to other potters we've been to in New England. I've found beautiful pottery pieces that I like better and at a more affordable price elsewhere.

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!
