We had such a pile of fun at Celebrate Ceramics last year that we’ve decided to hold it again this year. The date will be the evening of Friday June 2nd and again we will hold it at the Lion’s Club in East City, Peterborough. Tickets will be on sale, in the Pottery Shop only, beginning March 1st.
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.
Tickets for Celebrate Ceramics, KPG’s fundraiser, will be available during our Holiday Show & Sale. This is the perfect gift for those hard to buy for folks, or as a thank you gift for that special person on your Christmas shopping list. What a great chance for you to offer someone a one-of-a-kind gift while supporting the KPG!
What is Celebrate Ceramics you ask? In support of fostering, educating, and promoting ceramic arts and artists, the Kawartha Potters Guild is holding a fundraiser on Friday April 8, 2022. Each Event Ticket holder, when their number is randomly drawn, will be able to choose a pottery item to take home with them. If you want to bring a friend or partner along with you, Guest Tickets are available. This is a great gift idea while supporting the local ceramic arts community.
Tickets are $75 (guest tickets are $25) which entitles the ticket holder to a beautiful piece of pottery of their choice, complimentary wine and appetizers, live music and an evening of fun and entertainment! Celebrate Ceramics is on Friday April 8, 2022 at the Lions Club on Burnham St. in Peterborough.
Are you ready? Our annual Holiday show and sale is back! With many of our regulars and a few new faces, you can continue your holiday tradition (or start a new one) by visiting us between December 14 – 23. We will be open Monday – Friday from Noon – 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
As with last year, we are giving you the opportunity to book a minimum of a half hour time slot (you can stay longer, just make another booking) to shop in a relaxed and uncrowded atmosphere. You can certainly take the chance and drop by. If we are not full, we can let you in (or advise when you can return). You can book your appointment (s) here.
We are taking donations of socks for local charities if you wish to drop a pair by when you visit. We will also be selling tickets to our Celebrate Ceramics Fundraiser, scheduled for April 2022. More about this event in a future post – watch this space!
