We had a very strange experience at this studio. I attended with my three others, and whilst the facilities were great, the customer service was absolutely dreadful. Initially, despite the studio being empty apart from our group and one other couple, we were made to sit in a line of 4 and not opposite one another (meaning we couldn’t talk as a normal group would.) The owner was extremely offended when we asked to move to one of the other (empty) tables and told us off for having a bad attitude, so we were immediately made to feel very unwelcome. Although we had already each paid £20, any item that an adult might want to paint seemed to come at an additional cost. For example, even painting a basic mug costed £22. The only things included in the £20 bracket were small children’s toys etc - this we found quite strange for a BYOB session. The worst part came when I helped myself to a paint colour that my table didn’t have, and the owner ran over, snatched the paint from my hand and shouted at me for ‘disrespecting his house.’ We hadn’t been told that we weren’t allowed to take additional paint colours. He then shouted at me and my sister on multiple other occasions, very close to our faces and very aggressively - he even shouted at us for saying he was aggressive... It was extremely awkward for us and for the other guests in the studio, and incredibly unprofessional. He even wagged his finger in my face at one point - I think I had asked him to leave us alone, so that we could actually get on with the painting. It was a real shame - the premise of the Studio is good, and we did end up having fun, but the way we were treated definitely ruined the day for us. Not sure if we caught them on a bad day, but the whole experience was bizarre. Definitely won’t be returning any time soon.

We hosted a company social at Holl Studios and everyone loved it. The staff were fun, friendly and patient with us (especially great as we were a large group). This class is such good value for money and being able to bring along a bottle of wine made it even better. We will definitely be coming back! Thanks again!!

Amanda - June 6th
Not worth the money. Studio is cramped, too hot and disorganized. The art supplies are scarce. They use cheap Chinese "ceramics". The staff is unhelpful, the overall customer service is unsatisfactory. The owner is one of those guys who thinks he is a charmer and a gift to this world but really is just a bore.
review
Liam - June 4th
We had a great time, the studio was full of different groups of people all keen to get creative. We enjoyed just getting messy with the paints and enjoying doing something different. There is a good selection of pre-made ceramics all at different prices depending on size (your deposit goes towards the price of the ceramic). I would recommend something small and simple for your first time. We are waiting to collect our 'masterpieces' but definitely recommend the guys at Holl Studios.
