On November 30, December 1 and 2 the Brantford Potters Guild Annual Christmas Sale will  showcase the works of  more than 35 potters, each with their unique talent and perspective reflected in their work. A variety of styles and pots to choose from ensure there is something for everyone. Check on Facebook for information and pictures of  the potters in this upcoming sale. 

The sale also features EMPTY BOWLS  where sales donated handmade bowls go towards the foodbank.

The guild finances  activities and Clayworks Studio that provides adult and childrens classes, workshops and work space for guild members.

This year there is also a fundraiser to assist their friend and fellow potter Steven Smith of Six Nations, of Talking Earth Pottery,  who due to severe illness has been kept from working in his studio,  and will keep him out of commission for quite some time.  ‘Potters Helping Potters’ is an initiative that seeks to sell donated pieces of pottery at varying prices to help with the many expenses incurred and still to come, as well as the lost income from a prolonged time without working.

The Brantford Potters Guild was formed in 1975 and incorporated as a not for profit organization in 1978. Membership has grown from the initial 15 to the current membership level of 75. In September 2014 they opened “ClayWorks Studio”, at 111 Sherwood Drive, in the Artisan’s Village.  It is a teaching pottery Studio with year round classes and workshops for Adults and Children. When the studio is not in use for classes, Studio Members have access to the facilities to work on their projects.   

The Mandate of the Guild is to bring together people who have a common interest in pursuing the craft of pottery and to encourage high standards of craftsmanship by providing learning opportunities to improve the skill and artistry of the potters.
