Piggery Pottery, Llanrug, Snowdonia, North Wales

Piggery Pottery is pottery heaven! There are pre-made clay piggy banks, ornaments, and plates that you can decorate. Or you can have a go at throwing a pot. You will have plenty of choice to get your creative juices flowing. Lying on the outskirts of Llanrug, and not too far from Llanberis, Piggery Pottery is a lovely place to while away a few hours for all ages. What's more, it's open year-round and a fabulous rainy day activity!


Piggery Pottery takes its name from the Pig shed in which it started back in 1974.  Today still going strong you can take away a pottery piece to paint at home or paint it in the studio, and they will varnish it for you to collect the next day. Alternatively, you can throw your own pot and have it fired and they will post it or you can collect. Do ring in advance if you want to throw a pot.

There is a cafe on site where you can have hot chocolates and snacks and where Barbara’s paintings are displayed and a shop where you can buy everything from lamps to personalised plates nightlights and more.
