Ivy, Duchess of Portland set up The Harley Foundation in 1977. It is a charitable trust which works to encourage the enjoyment of the visual arts and to celebrate the handmade.
It funds The Harley Gallery and The Portland Collection, and also runs a wide variety of events and activities. These range from workshops for local schools through to tours of the State Rooms at Welbeck Abbey.
The Harley Foundation also provides services for artists through support schemes, retail opportunities in The Harley Shop and subsidised studio spaces. Up to 25 artists and makers have space to work in The Harley Studios, in the beautiful surroundings of the Welbeck estate, Nottinghamshire.
