Historic Parksville Train Station

Thank you for your interest in Guild Membership. We ask that prospective members either have taken one of our classes or take a studio orientation if you have previous knowledge of a working studio. This will help you feel comfortable with the idiosynracies of our particular studio operations. Meetings are short and usually include a demo or other useful potting information.

Guild Membership

Annual Fees are due September 1st each year. Our Annual General membership fee is $ 30.00 and volunteer time. As we are a non-profit, volunteer-run organization, all members are required to take on a job from our job list for the year, to help in the operations of the Guild. Members have first chance at workshops and the opportunity to participate in Sales events.

Studio Membership

If you wish to use the Studio or any of the Guild equipment, glazes or kilns, there is an additional annual fee of $145.00 for Studio use. Fees also apply to glaze and kiln use. A Studio orientation or some training on special equipment may be required before using the Studio.

We have an Studio half year rate (April to September) for new members wishing to start earlier, a special introductory rate for students finishing a class who want to see if our studio will work for them, and a monthly fee option for those who are only in the area for the winter (or summer) and would like somewhere to keep up their pottery habit!

*** Please note that all members are encouraged to attend meetings - to meet other members and take advantage of after meeting demos and social time. If a member wants to participate in any of the Guild Sales Events, attendance at 2 meetings immediately prior to the sale is required, to sign up and get all the information.

Full details on rates and other information is available at the Station during open hours.


No LOW Fire Clay is Allowed in the Studio! If In Doubt, Please Ask!!
