Welcome to the Almonte Potters Guild! (APG)
The Almonte Potters Guild was founded by a group of like-minded artists in September 2002. With their combined resources and donations from friends in the community, a pottery studio was opened in the heart of Mississippi Mills.
The APG was incorporated as a non-profit organization on January 20, 2021 operating with a Board of Directors (BOD) who are elected at the Annual General Meeting.
At any given time, the APG has more than 25 active studio potters of all skill levels. The APG provides a shared communal space for potters. It is organized as a co-operative where each potter respects and cares for the studio and equipment as if it were their own.
The studio’s day to day operations are dependent on the hard work and commitment of all of its studio potters who share the responsibilities of operating and maintaining the studio facilities.
The APG offers courses and workshops for all levels of experience throughout the year. Free in-studio workshops are occasionally offered for APG Studio Potters.
The APG participates in community events such as the Mississippi Mills Art Romp (previously known as The Crown and Pumpkin Studio Tour) as well as in several independent APG Pottery Sales throughout the year which coincide with events in the area (like the Cheerfully Made Christmas Market).
We can be found at 95 Bridge St. in the beautiful town of Almonte, ON.
