Guildford Village Potters' Club was started in 1981 and is now situated in the old policeman's house in Guildford's historical courthouse precinct.
You will find us at 22 Meadow Street, Guildford - right next door to the Swan Valley Tourism & Information Centre!
We are open every day (EXCEPT New Year's Day, ANZAC Day, Good Friday, Christmas & Boxing Day) 10am to 4pm daily.
We have 23 members making pottery in a wide variety of styles and prices, from the magic of Raku to fine tableware, sculpture and wall hangings.
We share equally the tasks of running a gallery. New work is displayed almost daily as we arrive to do our rosters.
As friendly and enthusiastic ceramic artists we are always keen to discuss our work and promote our craft.
Tours are very welcome, preferably by appointment, when we are happy to offer demonstrations.
Any questions - we welcome your call on 9279 9859 or please email us on: [email protected]
Be sure to visit the Historical Society's Museum while you are here.
