Coll Pottery and Craft Centre is an active, productive centre for the crafts of ceramics, metal and glass. Visit the centre for demonstrations, talks or just to have a break in the cafe. In the shop, and in our galleries, the artworks are guaranteed to be made in the Outer Hebrides. Local quality products are our speciality, alongside our own artworks.
Coll Pottery is different from other galleries, in that the range of artworks produced encorporates a wide range of materials and techniques.
Stella Whittle – Solus Studio Glass,
Alan Whittle – Alan Whittle Ceramics,
Aidan Whittle – Aidan’s Forge,
Angharad Whittle – Sidheil Design.
The Oystercatcher Tearoom is open from 10am till 5pm for tea, coffee and home made cakes.
Light lunches of freshly made soup or oven baked jacket potatoes are served between Noon and 2pm.
We always have vegan/vegetarian/gluten free/dairy free options available.
Groups and coaches are welcome, and we are happy to accommodate you outside of normal opening hours if required. For tearoom, talks and demonstrations, booking at least 24hrs in advance is essential to ensure we have the correct staffing levels, not to mention time to bake some cakes. If you are just looking to browse our galleries and do some shopping, then just a couple of hours notice will do.
