Welcome to the Brantford Potters’ Guild

Brantford Potters’ Guild and ClayWorks Studio during the Covid19 Pandemic:

Answers to questions from the Brantford Potters’ Guild board of directors:

What will happen to the spring season of classes?

We are cancelling the term as there is no indication that we will be able to open the studio any time soon.

Will the Glenhyrst Exhibition proceed as scheduled?

No. We have received notification of the Glenhyrst Board’s plan.  They have very generously made accommodations for us:   Glenhyrst is cancelling their Juried Exhibition, which was to take place after ours,  and is to replacing it with the permanent collection / Potters’ Guild show. This means that the Guild’s new tentative date for installation will be the last week of May (with final dates to be confirmed in two weeks). Thus, the show would run from the very end of May to July 26th. Of course, this is only a tentative schedule and is subject to change as the impact of the pandemic shifts.

Will there be a spring sale?

 At this point it is difficult to predict what the future. The sale is set for May 21-23.  It will be difficult for our members that rely on the guild kilns to fire work to even produce anything in time for the sale.   Summer could be the earliest that we attempt to  plan anything.  Please watch here for updates and announcements.

 

When will the studio reopen?

We have no idea, but it will be as soon as is safely possible.

Stay safe everyone – we will be back in the mud when this is over!
