Membership

The Mississauga Potters’ Guild offers three levels of membership:

General Membership
Studio Membership,
and
Resident Artist Membership (RAM)

If you are interested in a Studio or RAM membership, contact the Membership Coordinator at info@mississaugapotters.com to discuss your experience and our studio space availability.

Commitment

The Guild relies on the commitment of all members to support Guild activities and mission. Studio and RAM memberships have additional responsibilities over the General members to ensure the studio space is properly maintained and runs efficiently. 

We rely on income from a number of sources. These can come from membership dues, class fees, sale commissions, Open Studio fees, community programs and grants. Since all sources of income are important for the financial viability of the Guild, we require commitment by all members to maintain the revenue streams to continue to operate the studio 24/7 for all.
