We have has artitists and instructors with works displayed in gallereries throught the Northwest states.
SPG relies on volunteers who have an interest in and appreciation for what the guild offers. We offer 8 week classes for adults 18 year and older, in general ceramics on a quarterly basis and an open studio experience for artists to share skills and knowledge about anything pertaining to ceramics.
