Potter Around is a ceramic painting business and craft studio based in Kirknewton on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

We founded Potter Around in 2010 to realise our dream of creating a magical studio where anyone, whatever their skill, can come to be creative, have fun and relax; where different arts and crafts are on offer, with the best tools and materials available and where all the staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Potter Around combines pottery painting with craft workshops, miniature painting, drop in sessions and clubs in jewellery making, glass making, throwing on the wheel, knitting together with a shop selling affordable arts and crafts made by local people, jewellery making supplies and Games Workshop models for painting miniatures. We would love you to join us on our journey and be part of it as we continue to grow Potter Around into something really special.

Good Causes

We are committed to supporting good causes and charities wherever we can. We run various events during the year where we donate our profits to charity. All our framing is done by Poppy Factory Framing, part of the Lady Haig Poppy Charity, where the proceeds go to support disabled ex-servicemen and women. We are also full of fundraising ideas if you are a group or association, looking to raise funds.

No need to book, but if you are a large group, please call us ahead so that we can reserve a table or room for you.

Come with your family, come with friends or come alone, we would love to see you soon at Potter Around.

Julia and Karen
