We visited this weekend with two young kids and were in and out in no time. Upon arrival the surly girls who were working there did not even acknowledge our arrival and I had to ask them if we were okay to come in. They had absolutely zero interest in us and gave the bare minimum information. There was no... More

Had a great time making our mugs today. Staff were very friendly and helped us with any questions we asked. Lots of lovely pieces to choose from. Great idea!

Took my 2 year old with me and had a really good time. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Even though I went there to get hand prints and casts done for my kid, I couldn't resist myself and jumped in, painting myself a nifty little ceramic golf bag! All in all, good fun and you get to create... More

Taken here by my daughter. It was a lot of fun - pick a pottery item, sit down at a table and become a great artist! Drinks are available. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Very different to anything we have done before and would certainly go back - an hour or two without any electronics! Great for groups of... More

I found this place when on a visit to Leith with my 6 year old son. This is great for kids that enjoy to paint and be creative. You make your bits one day and then pick them up the next. There is a nice tea and cakes area and also a small pay area for when the kids want... More

Given the prices charged here I would expect s great level of service but when I visited on 31/8/14 we were misinformed about the use of metallic paint. All we were told was that it shouldn't be used on items that might be put in the dishwasher so given that I was painting a piggy bank I had no concerns.... More

Visited here today as we were looking for something in Leith that wasn't one of the major tourist attractions. 'We' are two adults, a teenager and a toddler. Drinks were average to good - it wasn't what you'd get get Costa, Nero etc but if we'd wanted that we'd have gone to Costa or Nero! A good brew at a... More

Me, my husband and 4 year old daughter visited here for the first time a few weeks ago. The atmosphere is very relaxed, staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. My daughter started to paint a plaster of paris figure of a cat. Not long after both me and hubby got stuck in and painted a skull and a gnome. Was... More
