Covid Update – February 18, 2021

From our Administrator, Donna:

Thank you for your patience while we confirmed what we are able to do as a Yellow Zone area, in relation to COVID-19. We have spoken with Peterborough Public Health and have confirmed their recommendation that people who live in an orange, red or grey zone be restricted from entering the KPG.

To ensure we all remain safe and to keep it fair for all members, students and staff, the Guild will remain closed until March 22nd when the next 6 week class session is slated to start. This of course is dependent on what zone we are in at that time. Flex Clay classes will not be offered at this time.

You are welcome to email us to arrange for drop off of items to be fired, or pick up of fired items, based on curbside service.

We will be reviewing changes as they happen. Please know that this information is only as good as today’s knowledge – everything is very fluid, changing daily. Do not hesitate to email me with any questions, your positive suggestions and comments are welcome!

For our Pottery Shop customers, our online store is still accessible and shipping and curb-side pickup are options.  

Once again, thank you for your understanding and support. We are all in this together!

Covid Update – February 4, 2021

Due to the extended lockdown, the Guild has opted to delay the beginning of regular classes until the week of March 22nd.  Please see our classes page for details or to register.  

If we are allowed to open in February, we will be running wheel flex clay classes to tide folks over until the regular classes begin.  These will be on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and evenings.  Registration is via email to our Administrator with payment via e-transfer.  Further details are also on our classes page (link above).   

Please note that the suspension of regular classes does not apply to the Tuesday and Friday Intermediate/Advanced classes.  These will begin the week we are allowed to open.  If you haven’t registered for this and wish to do so, registration is available on our classes page.  There are spaces available in the Tuesday evening and Friday afternoon classes.

We are also hoping to run our popular Summer Camp again this summer.  Currently it is being planned with the same smaller ratios that we offered last summer to maintain distancing and safety for our campers and our staff.  The weeks we will be offering are: July 5, 12, 19, August 9 & 16th.  We plan to offer a Teen Week the week of August 3, which may include the wheel if we feel it is safe to do so.  Registration and more details will be available on our camp page soon. 

As a reminder, non-medical masks, or face coverings are required to be worn at all times while inside the Guild facility.  Acceptable styles fit securely to the head with ties or ear loops, be made of at least two layers of tightly woven material (such as cotton or linen), best if a filter can be added, and be large enough to completely cover the nose and mouth without gaping.  Masks with any type of valve are not acceptable.
