To Teach, To Learn, To Share

Potters Guild members create magic from Clay

We had an article in The Peterborough Examiner on December 22nd written by Joanne Culley.  It was a nice article talking about the guild and our recent Christmas Show.

We attach it here, please click on the image to be able to read it in a larger format.

For another article featuring our sale and a few images, go to The Peterborough Examiner website.

The Peterborough Examiner

We hope to see you at our open house

Don’t forget that we are having an Open House on Saturday and Sunday at our permanent location at 993 Talwood Drive in Peterborough.  There will be demonstrations, goodies and you can tour our facilities.  The Kawartha Woodturners’ Guild, Peterborough Handweavers’ and Spinners’ Guild as well as Gourds from the Canadian Gourd Society.   Drop in while you are doing your Christmas shopping and visit us for some hot cider and other refreshments.

We look forward to seeing you here!

Kind Words

We have a ballot each year and ask if people want to be on our mailing list (some do, no pressure) and if they have any comments.

We thought we would share a small sampling of comments as they were very nice this year.

“Love this show”

“Starts off my Christmas”

“Yearly Pilgrimage”

“Wonderful Stuff”

“Miss your Spring Show”

“Great Variety”

“Love Hurly Burly”

“Could do with some larger soup bowls, the ones I’ve found are too small”

“Wonderful, Christmas Gifts Galore!”

“Super, mega, awesome”

“Amazing items, so hard to choose, I want one of everything!”

“I visit every year for unique, local gifts”

Thank you to everyone who visited and who has supported us in our move to our permanent location.

We wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Open House a Fun Event

What a busy few months the Kawartha Potters Guild has had.  We have moved an entire shop (George Stewart’s Jackson Creek Pottery) to our new location.  Set it up again with fabulous studio space and gallery.  Had two Family Clay Days and numerous other classes.  Held our annual Christmas Show and Sale and just had our Meet and Greet Open House to introduce ourselves to the neighbourhood.

It was a fun and busy few hours and we thank everyone who came out.  If you are looking for a last minute gift for the special someone who loves hand made gifts made not only in Canada, but in the Peterborough and Kawartha areas, come to our gallery and look around.

Merry Christmas!

Our Gallery is now officially open!

The gallery is now open.

We opened our gallery to the public officially yesterday (although, we’ve had some sales from curious shoppers already).  Our official opening hours are:

Tuesday  – Friday: 11am – 6pm
Saturday – 10am – 5pm

There is new work from our guild members as well as work you have loved and know from George Stewart at Park Street Pottery.  This is the perfect place to buy that one of a kind gift for a wedding or Christmas!

We look forward to seeing you soon.
