About Us

Make North opened in August 2019 in Preston City centre, pre-coronavirus we hosted open-access pottery facilities and professional studios for makers. With our community pottery temporarily closed we are providing a service so our members can make and learn new pottery skills  at home and have their your work fired and glazed, we currently have 100 members potting at home!

Our focus is allowing people to develop projects at their own pace and structure their own learning journey, pottery is such a diverse Art-form and we want our members to be able to navigate their own path, with our guidance.

Make North was established by Louise Smith, you can more information on Louise and her past projects on her website www.louisesmith.work
