• Collection Access

    Much of the Potter’s collection can be viewed via Search the Collection.

    The Potter also welcomes visitors who wish to view works of art in storage. If you require access to view works of art for research purposes please book your visit at least three weeks ahead. During exhibition installations we are limited to the number of requests we can schedule and may not be able to meet the preferred dates selected. The number of works that may be viewed will depend on the size, medium and available viewing space.

    To request access to the stored collection visit please complete the form below and email or post back to the Collections Management unit.
