History

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

In 1989, the studio members 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 members. With the major rebuild completed the Mount Pleasant Art Society was dissolved in 1997.

In 2012 the studio membership decided to 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.
