Who We Are

The Mississauga Potters’ Guild, founded in 1978, is a non-profit, community-based volunteer organization. Our passion is the art and craft of pottery. We run a well-equipped studio with 20 wheels, three distinct working spaces for members and students, four kilns, a glaze kitchen and dedicated studio spaces for our resident artists. Potters of all skill levels--hobby, amateur, emerging and professional--work together to develop our craft. We encourage skill development for all those interested.

Member work is sold at our annual pottery sale, at local farmers' markets and at various sales and events throughout the community.

Member work can be found in various shows and exhibitions throughout Mississauga and the GTA.

You can see us in action at the annual Mississauga Waterfront Festival and we welcome the community into our studio on Culture Days. Join us for Open Studio on a Sunday afternoon or enroll in pottery classes offered to both adults and youth.

The Mississauga Potters' Guild is the proud recipient of  grants from the City of Mississauga.
