About The Wee Pottery

The Wee Pottery – Kirkcudbright is a new paint it yourself studio based at the Johnston Centre in Kirkcudbright.

The studio can seat up to 16 people and is ideal for children’s parties, groups, get togethers or simply to drop by and paint something unique as a keepsake or a gift to give to someone else.

There is a studio fee of £3 (including non painters) and all the pottery is individually priced. Help yourself to free tea and coffee, and we will serve you a sweet treat while you paint.

Ceramic Painting
Choose a piece of blank pottery from our large selection, paint and decorate your piece using stamps, sponges, shape tools and much much more!

Take a look at our ideas book before choosing your brushes, tools and colours. It takes up to two hours to paint your pottery, and for groups we provide free tea, coffee and home baking. When you have completed your piece of pottery leave it with us to be glazed, and fired in the kiln ready for collection in 4 days time. If you’re not able to collect, we may be able to deliver locally, or we can arrange to post your pottery direct to your chosen address.

If you are in a rush or would just prefer to take something away on the day there are certain pieces of pottery such as figurines and money boxes that can be painted using acrylic paint allowing you to take it away as soon as it is dry. Please note that anything painted in acrylic paint is NOT food and dishwasher safe.
Clay Hand and Foot Prints (and Paw Prints too…)
Imprints provide a wonderful keepsake to be treasured for years to come. We take an original impression of your baby or child’s hand and/or foot print in soft clay. After the imprint has been taken it needs to be left to dry out naturally taking up to two weeks before being fired in the kiln for the first time. It is then painted, glazed and re-fired in the kiln ready for collection. We can also take imprints of your dog’s paws. The total time from taking the imprint to collection is around 4 weeks. Prices start from £15, with options to have your imprint framed.

Parties
The Wee Pottery is the perfect venue for children’s birthday parties. Come along to do some painting, we will decorate the studio for you to enjoy a painting party! Different party packages are available depending on your requirements. Prices start from £10 per person with a minimum of 8 children.

Each child will choose a piece of blank pottery from our large selection, paint and decorate their chosen piece using stamps, sponges, shape tools and much much more! The completed pieces of pottery are left with us to be glazed, and fired in the kiln ready for collection in 4 days time. If you prefer to take something away on the day there are certain pieces of pottery such as figurines and money boxes that can be painted using acrylic paint allowing you to take it away as soon as it is dry.
