Because of COVID-19 class sizes have been limited to 4 students.  Our class safety plan has been reviewed by the Department of Health, and registered students will be provided with an information sheet prior to the start of class. 

Our pottery classes are popular, so we know there will be more interest than spaces available:  your understanding is appreciated.  More classes will be on offer in the Fall 2021.

Guild COVID-19 Update

The Yellowknife Guild of Arts and Crafts currently has approval from the GNWT to allow members to access the pottery and mixed media studios. There is currently a limit of five people allowed in the pottery studio and four people in the mixed media studio at any given time. Access to both studios is being coordinated by our pottery and mixed media representatives.

We have also received approval from the GNWT to offer both pottery and mixed media classes. As part of this approval, our classes are limited to four students and masks are mandatory. Future pottery and mixed media classes will be on our website and Facebook pages so stay tuned.

Pottery and Mixed Media Studio – We are once again offering full studio access for members. However, since we are only allowed five people in the pottery studio and four people in the mixed media studio at a time there will be no open studio available. Therefore, those members requesting studio access will need to be able to work independently on their projects and ensure that the studio is left clean and the door is locked.

Pottery Studio – The open studio times remain the same; Thursdays 7pm to 9:30pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 1pm to 4pm. Since we are limited to a maximum of five people in the pottery studio at any given time the number of full studio members we can have is limited. Therefore, we are also offering members the option of purchasing full studio access, which would allow you to use the studio anytime (except when there are classes).

If you are interested in joining the guild and using either the pottery studio or the mixed media studio please email the guild at yellowknifeguild@gmail.com

Guild Strategic Plan Survey

The Yellowknife Guild of Arts and Crafts is developing a strategic plan to help guide the Guild in the coming years. To start the process, we have developed a survey to get your feedback on what the Guild is doing well, where the Guild can do better, and opportunities for change or growth. 

The survey is open to any past, present, and potential future members who are interested in providing input. The survey results will be used to prepare a draft strategic plan that will go out to members for review and feedback in the future.

Deadline to submit the completed survey is: February 19, 2021
