The Asparagus Valley Potters Guild is a group of professional potters who know the importance of continuing our education as potters and keeping the craft alive by opening up these workshops to the larger community.

On a yearly basis we invite a potter that we admire to show us some of their tricks.  In the past four years we have had the pleasure to learn from Phil Rodgers, Hayne Bayless, Val CushingBarbara Knutson, and Catherine White.

Our workshops are usually in January.  New workshops will be posted on this page. 

Here are a few photos of past workshops!
