We are part of the thriving Creative Industries sector in Cornwall. Below is a short film about Creative Industries in Cornwall made by the Creative Industries Federation and Cornwall Museums Partnership.

The Trust

The Leach Pottery is managed by the Bernard Leach (St Ives) Trust Limited. A charity set up in 2004 to develop and manage the site.

The original objectives of the Trust are:

To advance the education of the public in Cornwall and elsewhere in the life and work of Bernard Leach, his influence on the development of the ceramic arts and in particular studio pottery and to preserve and maintain his former house and work place at Higher Stennack, St Ives to house and display examples of his work and those of others whose work in the Trustees’ opinion may appropriately be displayed with the works of Bernard Leach and to train people inthe art, craft and manufacture of  pottery and related skills and increase the appreciation of the public in the ceramic arts. 

Registered charity no. 1111263.
Company limited by guarantee no. 05372378.

Enterprises

The Leach Studio is operated by the Bernard Leach Enterprises Ltd. (Company registration 05965856), a wholly owned subsidiary company of the Bernard Leach (St Ives) Trust Ltd.   Profits from the activities of the Enterprises are covenanted to the Trust to support our charitable activities.
