Pottery studio rental and artist residencies

Our Centre for Learning and Design is deeply embedded within our local arts and creative industries, and we have been able to offer short and medium term studio residencies to artists, as well as visiting internships to aspiring creatives.

We work closely with local artists in the community, and can offer a range of studio rental opportunities and artist residencies. Please get in touch with us to discuss what we can offer through the Centre for Learning and Design.
