Join the Dacorum and Chiltern Potters Guild
We welcome your interest in joining this active community of volunteers with an interest in clay,
pottery and ceramics. The DCPG members work hard to bring ceramic and the love of clay to the
community and further the development of potters new and established.
Members volunteer to organise these activities and benefits for our members and the public:
- Regular group meetings from May to October – demonstrations and presentations by top contemporary ceramic artists
- Free quarterly newsletters – with articles about our activities, discounts from suppliers and a diary of up and coming events.
- Promotion of our work through DCPG Facebook & Instagram accounts
- A loan of the DCPG wheels (a Shimpo and a Wenger) on an annual basis
- DCPG public demonstrations of wheel throwing and/or hand building at community clay events
- Access to wood and raku firings – managed in subgroups by members
- Access to comprehensive Library of pottery books to borrow at our monthly meetings to extend your knowledge
- Opportunity to take part in our Annual Fitzwilliam Competition
- An annual Members Exhibition and other opportunities to display and sell work
- An annual Potters Open Day (POD) event – a full day of lectures, demonstrations and chat with world leading potters
- Monthly coffee mornings and other social events where you can meet members and chat about clay (and other things)
