Philosophers have pondered for centuries, the age old question of
"What is the meaning of life?" However, we're too passionate about pottery to focus on that! If you are as interested as us, check out the rest of the site,
including our members' Gallery.

Members, there will be one firing mid-month and one near the end of the month. Please have your work on the shelves. If there is not enough work for a firing it may be another 2 weeks. We aim to load, but cannot always accommodate pieces in the order that they arrived on the shelves.
If you are interested in developing your ceramic art practice or
simply want to try your hand at creating pottery for the first time,

After it became clear that the ceramics course at Canadore College was terminating, a large group of local potters convened. The potters were enthusiastic to have a guild established. From that point forward a seven person board was created. Meetings were held, grants were written and locations were investigated. With the support of equipment and materials from Canadore College, donations from local potters and fund raisers supported by the community at large, the North Bay and Area Potters’ Guild was created. It took two years and much expertise from dedicated potters and community members to move this forward.
In 2014 a studio location was secured at 128 Oak Street East and a Grand Opening was celebrated in May 2015. The guild continues to provide the community with exceptional instruction and an open studio for members.
