So you want to join the Kingston Potters’ Guild? There are three types of membership to choose from but you can only have your name on one waiting list:

General Membership – $80.33 (+HST) / year
Glaze & Kiln Membership – $171.36 (+HST) / year
Studio Membership – $321.30 (+HST) / year

What does it mean to be a Member?

The Guild is a Co-operative: we keep it running by doing all the jobs required ourselves, on a voluntary basis. Once you join, you’ll be offered or assigned one of the available jobs, which range from publicity to cleaning up the kitchen area. You cannot be a member without participating in some way.

Often on Wednesdays, when there are no scheduled classes or meetings, members meet to work on their projects and talk about pottery stuff. You are welcome to join. It’s a good moment to meet members and ask questions you may have. We encourage you to sign-up on our Facebook Kingston Potters’ Guild Members Forum page. If you join a committee you will meet others too.

Our Guild meetings are on Wednesdays, and attending them helps you learn about how we function as a group. We would ask that you attend a minimum of three of these (there are only six per year).
