Combine learning about the process of creating pottery with purchasing beautiful gifts. The shop has nice displays and the grounds are lovely.

Love this place. Great tour especially if one of the workers are around to lead it, otherwise it's self-guided. The pottery itself is beautiful. I always find something to take home. The quality is excellent and looks great in the kitchen for display..

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!
