The guild has now grown to approximelty 50 members and is based out of the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Building.
Cariboo Potters Guild member Alision Mann, spoke at the reception, giving a little incite to the theme “50 shades of clay”. Explaining that each potter has their own style and expresses their creativiely in the clay medium in very unique and different ways.
