Clayworkers’ Guild of Illinois


The Clayworkers’ Guild of Illinois is a dedicated group of ceramic clay artists and artisans. The Clayworkers’ Guild of Illinois exists to provide diverse educational, collaborative, and networking opportunities for both its members and for the general public. Join us for the fun!

Through various activities, we of the Clayworkers’ Guild serve the community while we provide exhibits and workshops. We strive to aid, encourage, advise, and work together to support each other’s endeavors. We always welcome new members and we delight in sharing what we do with interested participants.

Along with monthly meetings, social events and parties, the Guild provides its members with informative workshops by visiting artists. Previous topics have included sculpture, thrown and hand-built pottery, professional presentations, health and safety, form and expression. The Guild has a collection of videos documenting our workshops which may be borrowed by current members.

The Guild has also provided an outlet for the sale of pottery and artwork at the Woodstock Old Courthouse on The Square, in addition to sponsoring juried and national exhibits. Again, we encourage and invite you to join us.


The guild will temporarily be closed January 1st till March 1st while they move to 220 Main Street.  Be sure to follow their facebook page to get updates.
