Welcome to The Wee Pottery

The Wee Pottery is a paint it yourself studio based at the Johnston Centre in Kirkcudbright, at the former Johnston School. The studio itself can seat up to 22 people and is an ideal idea for children’s parties, groups, get together or to simply drop by and paint something unique as a keepsake or a gift to give to someone else.

There is a studio fee of £3.50 (including non painters) and all the pottery is individually priced. Help yourself to tea and coffee, and we will serve you a sweet treat while you paint.

We're open over the weekend Thursday - Monday from 10am to 4.30pm, closed between 1pm and 2pm.
