These peaceful, private studios are home to a community of designers, artists, makers and conservation specialists. The studios are open to the public during two ‘Open Studio’ events each year, and by appointment.
When Ivy, Duchess of Portland set up The Harley Foundation in 1977 she envisaged that the Foundation would support artists by providing affordable studio spaces in tranquil surroundings.
Since then, The Harley Foundation has established 3 sets of subsidised studio spaces situated within the old Welbeck Kitchen Garden. The studios offer facilities for a range of different creative practice, and are home to a diverse community of artists and craftspeople.
We are currently seeking applications to The Harley Studios. If you would like to find out more about working in our studios at Welbeck, please download an application pack.
