The building in the back has the potters working and demonstrating various steps in a self guided tour. On a Saturday afternoon, only one person was in the shop doing quality assurance on tea cups. The store has more than just pottery. Pottery pricing seemed...More

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!

Thanks for visiting Bennington Potters Jen, and for your review! Definitely come back sometime soon - meet the Potters and see the pottery made. There's always new things to see in the Store too!

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.

Thanks for stopping by @655donl! Come back again soon! Bennington Arts Weekend is August 4th - 6th - there will be lots happening in Bennington.

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.

It's still an experience, but the place has really changed. What used to be all handmade Vermont pottery is now largely imports.

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!
