Our AGM will be on September 18th (Sunday afternoon) and will be held by Zoom. We are asking that you attend this meeting as the board has been discussing some very important matters that will affect the future of our Guild and we need your input. You will receive by email (info will also be made available for download via the members’ side of the Guild website) 2 weeks before the meeting, some documents that will provide background information regarding the topics being discussed at the meeting. Reading these beforehand will be helpful to the running of the meeting.
We are ecstatic to announce that we have officially sold out for our first fundraiser. If you missed out, we do intend to do this again, and certainly you can visit our Pottery Shop at 993 Talwood Dr. any time throughout the year. Just check our main page for current shop hours.
Celebrate Ceramics is only one week away now, on Friday April 8 from 7-9 p.m. at the Lions Centre in Peterborough. Live entertainment for the evening will be provided by jazz pianist Rob Phillips.
Don’t forget to bring cash. There will be a raffle which you don’t want to miss out on!!! Also, please note that additional beverages (after your complimentary drink) can be purchased at the bar.
We haven’t been able to show you everyone who has donated to Celebrate Ceramics, so please enjoy this sneak peak.
Are you looking for an evening with great entertainment, refreshments, good company and the ability to go home with an individual piece of pottery? Look no further, do we have the event for you.
Celebrate Ceramics is a fundraising event for the Kawartha Potters Guild. Join us on Friday April 8, 2022 at the Lion’s Club in Peterborough, Ontario. Tickets are $75.00. Everyone who purchases an Event Ticket will be entered into a draw. Throughout the evening, Event Tickets will be drawn at random. When the ticket holder’s number is drawn, that person can choose one pottery item from those displayed to take home! If that is not enough, all ticket holders will receive a complimentary glass of wine, refreshments and entertainment. You can bring a guest for $25.00, but they will not be eligible for the pottery draw.
To support this fundraiser, the Kawartha Potters Guild has received donations of pottery from our Guild members and from potters throughout Ontario including Teresa Dunlop, Naomi Clement, Monika Schaefer, Anne Chambers, Thom Lambert, Thomas Aitken and Kate Hyde. The Guild has also received sponsorship from a number of local businesses including Empirical Assessment Solutions, Summit Terrace, Peterborough Gardens, AYA Kitchen Designs, and Cornerstone family Dentistry. We are most grateful for the support from our local businesses as well as other Ontario potters.
All funds raised will assist the growth of the ceramic arts community by helping to promote and foster the creativity of ceramic artists and the ceramic arts community. Funds raised will also support ceramic arts education for all ages and skills in Peterborough and the Kawarthas.
So come join us for a fun social evening, admire (and take home) some really stunning ceramic works. If you have any questions about purchasing tickets (they are available in our Pottery Shop), please call us at 705-742-4979 or contact our Administrator.
