St Ives Arts Club
The atmospheric Arts Club was established in 1890 as a members' club and as such continues to offer a host of entertainment, music and exhibitions in the original harbourside venue.
Founded in 1920 by Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada, the Leach Pottery was restored in 2008 to continue their legacy and is among the most respected and influential studio potteries in the world.
Over the last hundred years it has forged the shape of studio pottery production in the UK and beyond. Scores of potters, students and apprentices from across the world have come to the Leach Pottery to train, creating a unique international environment in the heart of Cornwall and maintaining the pottery's creative principle of East/West exchange.
