The Kawartha Potters Guild was founded in 1993 and formed to promote the art and craft of ceramics in the community and to provide a forum for local potters to share their experiences and knowledge of clay.
This knowledge is passed on through guest speaker presentations, member's show and tell, informative newsletter, workshops, exhibitions, a library that features both books and videos and an annual juried sale.
The purpose of the guild is to assist members achieve and maintain standards of excellence in the creation of pottery through association, education and raising professional standards.
In the summer of 2012, the guild took the plunge and took on a permanent location at 993 Talwood Drive in Peterborough. We had always as a group had the dream of having a permanent location and it was decided to join together with Park Street Pottery (and George Stewart) to create our new Gallery and Studio space.
