A few words from our new Arts Patron:
“The Leach Pottery is honoured to have this opportunity to support the St Ives September Festival as their new Arts Patron for 2020. An iconic event in the St Ives calendar, the Festival celebrates the diverse creative talents from Cornwall and beyond.
The September Festival has a long history of bringing together local artistic communities. From their establishment by the International Musicians Seminar and the Penwith Society of Artists, of which Bernard Leach was a founding member, to the bringing together of local musicians and artists today. It is particularly fitting that we can renew our historic connection and come together once again to champion our shared values of artistic collaboration and exchange.
This is a significant year for the Leach Pottery as we celebrate our centenary. Since our foundation in 1920 we have supported the creative arts in St Ives, and we will carry on this tradition through an exciting programme of activities taking place throughout 2020. We invite everyone to join in with our Leach 100 celebrations and visit us during what is set to be a fantastic festival.”
