Coll Pottery Craft Centre is a working craft centre, located in the former Coll Pottery buildings at Coll.. We are just 6 miles outside of Stornoway on the road to Tolsta.

We currently have 2 galleries featuring a range of art, crafts and gifts, in a wide variety of prices. All are guaranteed to be made in the Western Isles, with the vast majority being made on site, by the resident artists. During your visit, you can watch our resident artists/craftspeople at work, from a vantage point that overlooks the main pottery floor.

We also offer half day, full day and evening classes and workshops in glass or ceramics, please contact us or see our website for details or to book. Individual tuition also available, by arrangement. These activities are great as something different or to fill a rainy day.

Our tearoom serves simple refreshments such as teas, coffees, cakes and soups, with vegetarian and vegan options always available, and includes a Gaelic speaking table, whereby learners can practice their skills with our supportive fluent speaking staff.  Opening days and times will be posted on Facebook and our website. Due to Covid, we cannot guarantee tearoom opening days/times, so please check.

Our current residents are:

Solus Studio Glass - Kiln formed glass, recycled glass and jewellery.
Alan Whittle Ceramics - Hand built and wheel thrown ceramics, cold cast local interest, and celtic sculpture.
Aidan's Forge - Artist blacksmith working in forged metal.
Sitheil Design - Polymer clay and Chainmaille jewellery.
