We look forward to welcoming back visitors to see two highly anticipated exhibitions Art & Action: Making Change in Victorian Britain and IN PRINT: 2020 Vision after lockdown.

Housed in the former Compton Pottery building, our newly expanded shop is steeped in local history.
Mary Watts founded the Compton Potters' Arts Guild in 1900, and, a year later, the Compton Pottery was built at the bottom of the hill beneath Limnerslease. The Pottery prospered throughout the beginning of the 20th century. Liberty & Co. on Regent Street stocked their works and, contrary to their own policy, allowed Compton ware to be marked with its own stamp. The Pottery remained a successful industry for a number of years, providing employment in the village until 1956.

All purchases go towards supporting Watts Gallery Trust, an independent charity. Please note deliveries will take longer than usual to fulfil whilst we are closed, as we are following government guidelines and our staff are working from home. We will dispatch once a week so please allow approximately 2-3 weeks for your delivery. We are so grateful and thank you in advance for your patience and support in this challenging time.
