The Guild, first established in the 70's, has been contributing to the community through its fundraising ventures for many years. Most notably, the Guild plays a key part in the annual "Soup Bowls Project" fundraising event for the Penticton Art Gallery. The Penticton Potters' Guild is well outfitted with everything that you can't fit in your basement. Members have access to potter's wheels, a slab roller, glazes, and kilns. members provide their own tools and clay.
Guild members meet monthly and have other gatherings and raku firings a couple of times a year. Workshops to learn and improve techniques are also held occasionally. Currently membership is $225/year. Clay is available for sale at the guild for members.
