Attraction Information

Potter Around is a pottery painting and craft studio located in Kirknewton on the outskirts of Edinburgh close to Livingston.

Try your hand at painting ceramics. You paint and we will glaze and fire. Become a budding artist on canvas or join in our textile courses.

Come to one of our special events such as Ready Teddy Go when we paint Pudsey Bears for Children in Need. At Christmas, visit our Santa's Secret Workshop where children can make a present for friends and relatives with a little help from the elves. All year round paint your baby's hand or footprint onto a plate, photo frame, heart or bauble and treasure it forever. Helpful friendly staff are on hand to help you with lots of fun and laughter.

Our warm and welcoming countryside studio is open 7 days a week. Children love our specially decorated children's room which is available as a party venue.

Opening hours

Monday to Saturday 10:00 - 17:00, Sunday 13:00 - 17:00


Pay for what you paint!
