Community Events

The Kingston Potters’ Guild offers and participates in a variety of community events every year.
Here you’ll find highlights of some of our activities.


Family Day at the Kingston Potters’ Guild

Tett Centre, 370 King St. West
February 19, 2024 — 10 am to 1 pm

Join us at the studio for a unique piece of Kingston’s cultural history.
The Guild is opening its vault of unused mosaic tiles to offer visitors the opportunity to paint their piece of this historic mosaic, or simply take home a glazed piece of mosaic, created for the ceramic art installation at the Richardson Bathhouse.

“Renewal”, the Richardson Bathhouse Mosaic, created by Guild members and unveiled in June 2023, is fast becoming a feature attraction on the Kingston waterfront and represents a significant piece of Kingston’s public art. Visit for more information on the Renewal project and Family Day.

Martha’s Table – Empty Bowls Fundraiser

IkukoHall2 400x265Martha’s Table is a soup kitchen where Kingston residents who are down on theirluck, can have a nourishing meal. Martha’s Table relies on donations of food and money to provide food and pay expenses.

Their major fundraiser, “Empty Bowls”, takes place each fall. At this community event, you can choose a one-of-a- kind hand made bowl and have a meal of gourmet soups and bread.

The Kingston Potters’ Guild and other Kingston area potters have donated bowls for this event for many years. Food is donated by Kingston’s finest eating establishments. It is a wonderful way to support a good cause, have a great meal and obtain a hand made bowl.

 Culture Days

We had tours of the studio, demonstrations on the wheel and provided opportunities for people to make things out of clay. The event was well attended.

Christmas Ornament Making
