Pottery Studio

The Harley Pottery Studio is a welcoming place which everyone can visit for pottery classes. You can find it at the heart of the Foundation’s artist studios.

Whether you’re a beginner looking for pottery classes with likeminded people, or you are an experienced potter who needs a pay-as-you-go studio space, our timetable will have something for you.

The Harley Foundation works to create spaces where the imagination can flourish, from our private artist studios to the award-winning museum.

Our Pottery Studio is a community space where visitors can work in inspiring surroundings – in an idyllic countryside location and surrounded by practicing artists and makers.

All of our classes are subsidised by the Foundation and generously supported by Nottinghamshire County Council. We work to offer an accessible, affordable place to practice pottery making.

The spacious studio is fully equipped with potters wheels and kiln facilities.

Studio hire is available. Contact us for more details.
