The Edmonton Potters’ Guild (EPG) is a place to learn, share ideas and techniques, and explore the craft of pottery. As a volunteer organization, it relies on members to maintain a safe and enjoyable environment in which to work and create.
The Guild is a cooperative organization that operates only through the dedication, enthusiasm and participation of its members. An Executive Committee, elected by the membership, is responsible for the operation, management, and planning of the Guild.
Day-to-day operations of the Guild are funded through three main sources:
- Class and studio fees
- Operating grants: Alberta Foundation for the Arts ; Edmonton Arts Council
- Proceeds from the EPG Annual Pottery Show and Sale
The EPG Annual Pottery Show and Sale is the only fundraising event conducted by the membership, and is the most significant source of revenue. A founding principle of the Edmonton Potters’ Guild, to “provide education through study and exhibition” holds true today. Qualified instructors introduce members to various aspects of pottery in classes and workshops with lectures, demonstrations, photos, and so on.
