 The Board is looking for new Board members.  Board members do not need to be a potter, or a Guild member.  If you are interested, or know someone who would be willing to be nominated, please contact our Board Chair, Ann Hobday.  

Members, please consider attending, via Zoom, our Annual General Meeting, scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Monday, September 28, 2020.  There are many decisions that need Guild member approval, including the above voting in of new Board members.  More details are available on the Members side of the website.


Awards for Deserving Guild Members!

Margrit's reaction upon receiving the Lifetime Membership award.

At our AGM on September 9th, the Guild recognized 2 members who have contributed greatly to our success today.  June Goodwin, one of our favourite teachers, was presented with the Appreciation Award, in thanks for her years as Guild chair (before we became a not-for-profit), as treasurer, as well as her energy getting us to take the leap to move into our current Talwood location in the first place.  We wouldn’t be in this spot now if it weren’t for you June – thank you!

Margit Beesley was given the Lifetime Membership Award.  Margrit came to Peterborough from the Toronto Guild and she and George Stewart were two of the original members of the KPG.  Margrit brought guild knowledge with her to assist in the formation of our guild (over 25 years ago now!) and actively participated in and supported the Guild through the years.  When the proposal to move to Talwood was made, Margrit jumped on the band wagon with enthusiasm and support.  Once we were open, she helped out often in the Shop as well as running workshops and presentations for our members.  Margrit only just recently retired from teaching our regular hand building class for us, for which she will be missed.  Thank you Margrit for all the support you have given the Guild over the years.
