Our September classes are starting to fill up. We have a new hand-building only course, for those of you who don't want to work on the wheel, and our regular classes, in the afternoons and evenings.
On September 13th from 1:30 - 3:30 we are offering another of our popular one session throwing classes. This is for those who have never tried pottery before and would like a chance to experience it before jumping in to a full session of classes.
We don't forget the kids with after an after school class on Wednesdays.
There is something for all the mudslingers out there!
Our Pit firing is scheduled for September and then in October we have Dan Hill offering a one day intermediate throwing class. Improve your skills or try a different aspect to pottery. Check out our Workshops page for all the details.
KPG has been involved with the YWCA's Empty Bowls project for a number of years now. We have always supplied bowls for this event and people come for a lovely lunch and pick out a bowl. They used to be able to eat out of the bowl, but health rules now mean that you get your bowl wrapped up to take with you and we do the dishes later! We are now sharing this event and there are now bowls from Kawartha Potters Guild as well as the Kawartha Woodturners Guild, The Canadian Gourd Society, Kawartha Glass Artists and the Peterborough Handweavers' and Spinners' Guild. We all belong to a group called The Artisans Centre. You can purchase tickets to this event at our gallery or online at the YWCA's website.
Dan Hill, long-time member of KPG and participant in our annual Christmas sale, will be holding an exhibition of his work at our Gallery from October 24 - November 14, 2015. The Gallery is open 11-5, Monday-Friday and 10-5 on Saturdays. We will have a Opening Reception on Friday, October 23, from 7-9pm. Refreshments will be served. Please come out and meet Dan and see his wonderful work!
Saturday Clay Club
We have an active club that meets on Saturdays each week. It is available to members only, but is a great way to encourage each other and improve your skills. Check out our recent post with photos for more information and times. Remember, you have to be a member in order to take advantage!
