Eldreth Pottery Oxford Showroom/Factory Tours

Why We Provide Tours - All of us here at Eldreth Pottery believe it is extremely important to educate both children and adults about American Craft.  After all, American Craft is a strong part of our history and present day culture.  Craft allows people to express themselves either through the creation of the work or purchase of pieces which reflect personal style and the unique characteristics which make us who we are.  We realize the impact this economy has had on the funding of the arts both in schools and in non-profit organizations across the nation.  As craftspeople, we have discovered that in order to maintain American Craft in our culture, it is partially our responsibility to educate.  You are welcome to come tour our Oxford Showroom/Factory where we handcraft all of our pottery for our three stores At this time we do not charge for tours.  Once you see the level of creativity and amount of time that goes into each piece we hope you will find something in our showroom you cannot live without.  After all, it is through your support we are able to provide 35 jobs in Pennsylvania and we greatly appreciate your business.

When We Offer Tours - You can't schedule creativity which is why we allow our artisans flexible work schedules.  Customers are welcome to stop by on weekdays to see the pottery being made.  Generally, our staff are here from 10am - 12pm and 1pm-4pm.  If you would like to confirm that we have tours available, please feel free to call us toll free at 888-811-4313 (M-F; 9am-5pm EST).  We hope to see you!

Who Can Tour the Factory - Anyone interested in learning about American pottery production is welcome to walk through.  If you have a group of 12 or more, please give us a call at 888-811-4313 (M-F; 9am-5pm EST) or send us an e-mail at info@eldrethpottery.com to schedule a tour.  Tour buses are required to schedule a tour, and may do so by contacting Diana or Dana at 1-888-811-4313.   

For smaller groups (less than 12), we would recommend calling a few days ahead to make sure there will be people working when you get here.  Please give us a call at 888-811-4313 (M-F; 9am-5pm EST) or send us an e-mail at  info@eldrethpottery.com .  

We do NOT offer tours between the months of October 1st - January 1st.

A Few More Details -
We feel it is important to educate children about fine craft and we would love to have them visit.  Please make sure you have enough chaperons if coming with small children.  

Our tour is not a hands on tour and as a result, we do not allow folks to make their own pottery at our facility.  We do allow this type of opportunity at our Spring Open House which is the weekend prior to Mother's Day.

Our shop is wheelchair accessible.  

We do not have a handicap accessible restroom.

We request that large groups make a comfort stop prior to their arrival at our factory.
