Artists in the Clay Guild of the Cascades (CGC) share a passion about clay with each other and the community. Our aim is to promote creative self-expression in clay, share knowledge and experience, and facilitate an appreciation of handmade pottery and ceramics.

Activities that support our aim are member meetings, educational workshops, cooperative purchases of supplies, exhibitions, and participation in charitable projects to help The Art Station and Empty Bowls.

The Clay Guild of the Cascades meets quarterly on the second Monday of January, April, July, and October. If you know anyone who might be interested in joining our guild and hasn’t yet because of lack of information, shyness, whatever, have them come to our next meeting. You do not have to be a member to attend.

Our usual meeting location is the Art Station unless we have made other arrangements to meet somewhere else for an event or tour.  The meeting starts at 6:30pm. The Art Station is located at 313 SW Shevlin Hixon Dr. on the west side of the river across from the Old Mill Shops. Thanks to The Art Station for generously allowing us to meet in their pottery classroom!

If there is something you want on the agenda, please contact Helen Bommarito at hbomm@bendbroadband.com before the meeting. You are welcome to bring any food, snacks or beverages.

Events and Studio Tours are scheduled on the alternate months of the Guild meetings when available. (February, April, June, August, October, December).
