Annual Semiahmoo Potters Society Events
Every year the Semiahmoo Potters host two sales events at the South Surrey Recreation Centre including their Yuletide sale in November as well as their Spring Show & Sale in May. At both events, unique artisan creations by talented local makers are available for purchase with the sales commissions helping with membership fees, which typically cover the society’s rent and operating costs.
About Semiahmoo Potters Society
The Semiahmoo Potters Society was formed in 1994 by a group of local potters who after taking pottery classes together decided to continue to develop their craft, work together and share ideas.
25 years later the society is thriving at their pottery studio in the South Surrey Rec Centre with a dedicated group of members who are committed to their craft and to their mission which is to:
- Foster, encourage and develop the art of pottery in the South Surrey and White Rock Communities
- Provide members with a pottery facility, equipment and services
- Offer a forum for the interchange of knowledge and skills among members
