The Arrowsmith Potters' Guild began in April, 1995 and makes it's home at the VIA Rail Train Station in Parksville on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The guild was founded by like-minded potter's in need of studio space and a place to retail their craft. With ten wheels, three kilns, a slab roller and large potting table, the studio is well equipped to host many potters at once and also offer classes to those interested in taking up the craft. All classes are temporarily cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Train Station Pottery Shop of members' work is open Thursday - Sunday and is an ideal place to purchase a local gift. For more information please visit our FAQs page.
