About Us

Founded April 23, 1993, the North-West Ceramics Foundation's volunteer Board consists of eleven individuals who have demonstrated commitment to ceramics in its many forms. The NWCF has an affiliation with the BC Potters' Guild but is an independent entity. It acts as the charitable voice of ceramists in British Columbia with the mandate of fostering public education in the ceramic arts in Western Canada. It has no members, collects no dues and supports programs that are open to anyone in the province.
