Leach Pottery

Based on the outskirts of the popular seaside town of St. Ives, Leach Pottery celebrates the life and work of Bernard Leach: a British studio potter and art teacher, who has been widely referred to over the years as the ‘father of British studio pottery’.

Carefully selected examples of Bernard Leach’s work is on display at this unique museum, along with other pieces crafted by well-respected potters. The on-site studio, built in 2008, is currently used as a modern workshop to train a new generation of skilled potters.

Visitors can experience the temporary exhibitions with wide-ranging themes scheduled throughout the year, visit the shop and browse the studio’s collection of standard ware, and even learn the art of pottery themselves, through Leach Pottery’s varied training programme.

Student potters, complete beginners and keen amateurs can learn pottery techniques, explore new approaches and methods or simply use the space to develop their own approach, via a wide range of training courses which take place throughout the year.

Family-friendly creative sessions are also scheduled at certain times of the year, giving children the opportunity to learn more about the fascinating and intricate art of pottery – and create their own designs, too.

With limited parking on site, there is a handy private car park opposite Leach Pottery. If you fancy a trip into the centre of St. Ives after your visit to the studio, you can catch a bus into town easily from this location.
