Make North provides pottery facilities and professional artist studios in Preston City Centre.

We offer a diverse program of courses, allowing people to engage with many forms of making and learn from experienced practitioners; with membership to allow people to develop projects at their own pace and access the facilities long-term.

Our ambition at Make North is to build a thriving collective of northern makers and work with them to develop projects and events, allowing us to play an active role in the community.


We have a 3yr lease on the former Saul Street Clinic in Preston City Centre. The building is fully wheelchair accessible, we have onsite parking for twenty cars and are close to the bus and train stations.

The quiet sunny space lends itself perfectly to pottery facilities and studios.


Our professional residents work mainly in ceramics, however we are seeking makers working in a range of disciplines to join the studios.
