Hintonburg Pottery in the community
Hintonburg Pottery is very active in the community and we partner with local organizations to make an impact with causes we are passionate about.
We recently supported the Cornerstone Housing for Women’s Purple Tie Gala with a silent auction item donation of a handmade and hand glazed unique pottery piece titled Blossom Bowl, with the event in total raising almost $50,000.
We also like to participate in local community events and again took part in the TASTE of Wellington West this year, collecting donations for Parkdale Food Centre and adding to the entertainment on the day with our ‘Wheels On The Street’ live wheel throwing demos.
Every year we host a workshop in support of Parkdale Food Centre (PFC), with all proceeds going to the provision of holiday meals. Last year we raised enough to provide 195 meals over Christmas. We are hosting our next event for PFC on Sunday, November 17th, 2019 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and hope to see members of the community supporting this brilliant cause once again!
We're also starting to move into outreach programming as we have partnered with schools and other organizations in the past to bring a bit of Hintonburg Pottery into their space, for those who can’t venture out to our studio but wish to try their hand at working with clay.
