Guild meetings are held remotely (with the occasional in-person exception) and open to the public; non-members interested in receiving an invitation and future Guild updates, please make a request using this contact form.
General Guild meetings are open to the public and focus on a presentation or demonstration. The primary purpose of the meetings is to enrich our members’ and the public’s appreciation and knowledge of ceramics. The Guild meets monthly. See “Upcoming Events” for dates and times. More information about the Guild’s activities is also available on Facebook and Instagram. Please follow us!
We invite you to stop by during the Ventura Harbor’s Art & Street Painting Festival, Saturday, Sept. 10 and Sunday, Sept. 11 from 11–6 each day. Over 30 ceramic artists will be featured in a special outdoor exhibit of just mugs. Throwing and hand-building demonstrations will take place all weekend outside the Gallery. Step inside to see a gallery bursting with functional and sculptural ceramics. For more information see the Gallery page.
The Guild makes quarterly clay and supply orders from Aardvark and Laguna as one of our greatest Plus Tier member benefits! By ordering as a group, we get favorable shipping and excellent quantity discounts on clay. Besides clay, you can order anything from their catalogs, such as glazes, tools, kiln shelves/furniture, and bulk raw materials. More information is available on the Membership Page. Please note that you must be a Plus Tier member to participate in the clay ordering.
Call to VCPG Artists
VCPG at Beatrice Wood Art Center – “It’s About Time”
Attention all VCPG Members:
Application, Images & Fee Due Date: August 14
Event Dates: September 17 – October 29
There are many ways to show the passage of time: clocks, calendars,
changing seasons and human life (childhood to old age). There is the
contrast of the past, present and future. You can address these many
aspects of time through form and surface design. See Newsletter for more information and application.
