The Ventura County Potters’ Guild will host a double event in downtown Ventura on November 5 and 6 (10am-6pm). There will be an outdoor market on Main and California Streets showcasing many local potters just in time for your holiday shopping. Handmade pottery makes a thoughtful, personal gift. Peruse the gorgeous mugs, bowls, vases, planters, sculpture and more. You will have your holiday gift list checked off in no time.
In addition, there will be a Bowl of Thanks fundraiser. Local potters are donating hundreds of bowls that can be purchased for $20 each. Funds raised will be donated to Downtown Ventura’s Family Reconnection Program,
Each bowl purchase is accompanied by a punch card allowing the purchaser to sample tastes from over 15 restaurants and pubs. Bowls for pasta, ice cream, cereal, berries, loose change or your doggy (or kitty) will be available in all sorts of sizes and colors.
The Ventura County Potters’ Guild, a non-profit founded in 1957, continues its mission of promoting ceramic arts through its Gallery in Ventura Harbor, workshops, and monthly meetings. www.venturapottersguild.org.
