The Leach Pottery St Ives Cornwall

The Leach Pottery St Ives Cornwall

The Leach Pottery was founded in 1920 by Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada. It is one of the most respected and influential potteries in the world.

The pottery sits on the main road out of St Ives on The Higher Stennack road near to the Fire Station.

If you have children, I highly recommend the clay days and throwing on a wheel workshops which they run during the school holidays. They are really good!
