We may not be able to gather in person, but our Multi-Kiln Opening is still The Village Potters Clay Center’s biggest event of the year!

Lori Theriault and Katie Meili Messersmith will be your hosts as we share our day with you via Facebook Livestreams! Here’s a glimpse of our schedule below – we’ll stream in segments, so you can set a reminder if there’s a demo or kiln opening that you really want to see! If you follow us on Facebook (@thevillagepotters) you can set alerts so you’ll know each time we go live!

Special note about the kiln openings: if you see a pot in one of the kilns that you would like to claim, just take a screen shot and call the gallery – we’ll help you get that pot! Also, keep an eye on our online gallery – any pots not sold during the event will be added to the online gallery asap following the event (Pro Tip: if you’re local and see a pot you like in the online gallery, you can come to the gallery and purchase it in person!)
