To Teach, To Learn, To Share

Holiday Wishes

As Chair of the Board for KPG, I would like to take a minute to thank all of our wonderful customers, students and members.  We never thought we would grow as much as we have during Covid and we are very thankful for all of you.  This year has been the first full year of classes, sales and summer camp, since 2019.  We have been very happy to welcome all of you back and introduce your new friends to our great shop, teachers and members.  We look forward to seeing you again in 2024.  

The Guild will be closed for business and regular operations from December 24, 2023 – January 3, 2024, opening again on January 4th.  Classes will begin the week of January 8th and as of this writing, there are still a few spaces left.  

From all of us, to all of you, we hope you have a healthy and happy holiday season, and we wish you the brightest, and most creative New Year.

Happy Holidays and Thank You

As another year of Covid comes to a close, we would very much like to thank our customers and students who have continued to support us, even as the cost of living spikes.  We try very hard to keep our costs down in order to share the knowledge of clay.  Your patronage of our store and sales supports both the Guild and our independent artisans and we thank you.  

As Chair of the Board, I also wish to thank our amazing Admin and Tech who do so many things to keep our Guild running smoothly.  Our members and volunteers are definitely our backbone, and I extend my thanks to you for all you do to help us accomplish our goals.  Thanks also to our Board who work hard to keep moving our Guild forward.  

We will be closed December 24 – January 2, 2023.  We do try to check orders and messages, but please allow for delays as our staff celebrate the Holidays with their families.  

May you have a wonderful and healthy Holiday season and a Happy New Year.  We look forward to seeing you in 2023.

We are now closed for the holidays and would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers and students for making us more successful than we could have hoped for when we first moved in to Talwood in 2012.  We would also like to thank our staff who keep the guild working, and our volunteers who really are the back bone of any guild – from those who wash floors and windows to those who spend hours on the board of directors.  We will be open again on Tuesday January 7, 2020 and our classes for the remainder of the 8 week session, will begin that week as well.  Should you need to reach us over the holidays you can email Donna, our Administrator, or leave a phone message at 705-742-4979.  We will get back to you as soon as we are able.  

We hope that you have a wonderful holiday, however you celebrate.
