The Guild's 50th Anniversary Year includes special activities to complement the Guild's annual events and celebrate our important milestone. We have been an important part of the pottery community in Ottawa since 1973. Our 50th Anniversary committee is co-chaired by Monica Rosenthal and Amy Bell, with Kirstin Davidson, Barbara Minish, and Natalie Gosselin.
A special logo has been developed for this year that will be used throughout the year. Information will be shared regularly at Guild meetings, on our website, Guildforum and through social media.
