The relationship with North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre began in 1984. The city provided the infrastructure and a group of potters raised funds to help build or purchase specialized equipment to facilitate the artistic growth of its members.

In 1989, the users of the ceramics studio at NMPAC formed a Not-For-Profit society called the Mount Pleasant Art Society. They were instrumental in gaining major funds to help build a new clay wing at the Centre thus expanding teaching opportunities and providing a bigger and better studio space for ceramics. With the major rebuild completed the Mount Pleasant Art Society was dissolved in 1997.

In 2012 the potters at NMPAC decided to again form a Not-For-Profit society called the Mount Pleasant Potters’ Guild in order to provide further support for educational opportunities in clay and needed studio equipment. The Mount Pleasant Potters’ Guild was incorporated under the Alberta Societies Act as a non-profit organization on August 1, 2012.
