In the fall, the schedule will change at the direction of the City of Guelph Recreation Department
Non-Guild members can participate in Open Studio. To participate, you must be 18 years old or older and you must have taken two full sessions of instruction at the studio, or equivalent instruction elsewhere. A city staffer will be on hand to assist with questions and routines but no instruction is provided. Participants are expected to be familiar with and follow safe ceramics studio practices and are responsible for the clean-up and tidying of their own workspace and tools.
Good news . . . for potters needing firing services or technical and creative support. Check out our MEMBERS' PAGE under MORE and read about services offered by local potter, Chris Hierlihy
