The Mount Pleasant Potters’ Guild works to provide unique ceramic educational opportunities and to support the North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre in maintaining a premier facility for ceramic artists of all levels to learn and create together in a supportive environment.
We are a non-profit organization formed by users of the ceramics studio at North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre (NMPAC) in Calgary, Alberta. We work to build a community where ceramic artists, hobbyists and students of all levels come together to learn more about ceramics, improve technical skills, and enhance our lives through creative expression. This supportive environment helps provide inspiration and motivation.
Central to the Guild mandate is our educational programming consisting of evening presentations and weekend workshops where internationally recognized ceramic artists and local potters share their knowledge and expertise with members, ACAD students and the general public. Learn more about some of the guest artists we have hosted in the past.
We hold at least two fundraising markets a year where you, as a member, participate by displaying and selling your wares. Proceeds from the Pottery Market finance our Guild sponsored weekend and evening workshops as well as student scholarships and equipment for the NMPAC members studio.
