The Art Alliance of Central PA Potters Guild has been a collective of ceramicists since 1971. Since the inception, we have had our studio space in the basement of the Art Alliance classroom at 818 Pike Street, Lemont.
Potters Guild members range from hobbyist to professional potters. All members are required to have had studio experiences before entering the Guild as well as be 18 years of age or older. Because we are the only pottery studio in the area, we frequently have a waiting list of people hoping to enter the Guild. For complete membership information, click on MEMBERSHIP link above.
The Guild, which can accommodate around 35 members at any time, allows 24/7 access to a complete ceramics studio. We share 7 wheels, one electric kiln, two gas kilns and a raku kiln. There is also an extruder, a slab roller, a glaze mixing area (with a comprehensive supply of glaze chemicals), a ceramics library, and ware shelves. As a collective, we share the equipment as well as the responsibility to care and clean the space for all members to enjoy.
