Spring Gathering

Our Spring Gathering 2025 is in the making.

As in previous years the venue is the Police College in Tulliallan.

Dates: 7-9 March 2025. Tickets should be available from 2nd Dec 2024. More details on registration TBC.

Demonstrators are booked and confirmed; Craig Underhill, Janene Waudby and Michelle Young-Hares. A fabulous mix of making styles.

Arrival is from 4pm onwards on Friday, and the weekend finishes at approx. 4pm on Sunday.

Demonstrations are only one part of our exciting Spring Gathering. In addition, we have the following regular features:

  • Mug swap
  • Anne Lightwood Award
  • Members display area
  • Raffle
  • Shannon Tofts photography
  • Supplier(s) shop
  • Saturday night ceilidh (optional fancy dress)
  • For sale table

Of course, we all know that a major part of the Spring Gathering is the chance to network, catch up with old friends, make new friends and talk until you are hoarse about all things pottery. Following on from the positive feedback received we will again have SPA Ambassadors whose task it will be to make sure that all first time visitors are welcomed and included.

If you would like to be an ambassador at Tulliallan Spring Gathering 2025 please email chair@scottishpotters.org

To give everyone a chance to get making, the details are as follows:

Mug Swap

We ask everyone attending to bring along a mug. On arrival, you deposit your mug on the table in the Lecture Hall, adding a raffle ticket inside your mug and keeping hold of the counterpart - you will need this part to claim your swap mug. Just before the AGM on Saturday afternoon, the tickets are swapped around and you take home the mug now containing your ticket.

Anne Lightwood Award

Please bring along your best pot and place it on the display table. Prior to the AGM, the three invited demonstrators will choose the winner who will be presented with a certificate and prize at the AGM. New for 2025 will be members award – all members being encouraged to vote for the piece that most appeals to them – details of how this will be done tbc.

Members’ Display Area

If you would like to display some of your pottery, for sale or just for show, bring along a small selection with some business cards or flyers and place them in the display area.


Members are asked to bring a piece of pottery or pottery related items to donate to the raffle. Tickets will be sold on arrival and throughout Friday and Saturday and the raffle will be drawn after the AGM.

All of these activities are optional but it is fun to take part.
