Community

The Almonte Potters Guild (APG) is an innovative, member-run facility that enhances recreational activities in the Mississippi Mills community. The studio is located in the centre of Almonte, Ontario.

Headed by experienced instructors, the 1000 square foot facility offers lessons at all levels for adults, teens and children. Weekend workshops throughout the year are offered by well-known ceramic artists.

The Guild offers courses, camps, professional workshops and lectures. We also host a series of potluck dinners that are followed by a workshop.

Facilities include:

  • A full suite of electric wheels
  • A slab-roller
  • A pugmill
  • Three electric kilns
  • Plenty of hand-building tables
  • A glazing area
  • Tools for hand-building and wheel throwing
  • A Library of reference materials

Philosophy
