Established in 1873 by local potter Absalom Harris, it operated for over 130 years and was run by five successive generations of the Harris family. Many well-known local potters learnt their craft at the Pottery. Currently undergoing an extensive sympathetic renovation, The Pottery will provide inspiring accommodation for a range of craft ventures, with the primary focus on ceramics-based organisations, and will include public access space and exhibition areas, all with an emphasis on community involvement.

The Farnham Pottery is home to three craft organisations:

Farnham Sculpture

Farnham Sculpture is a group of wood and stone carvers, offering well equipped studio space and support for both experienced and novice carvers. Farnham Sculpture also offer workshops and courses throughout the year.
