181 Front St., New Dundee Drop by and say hi!

About us

Dundee Pottery is a conglomerate of pottery and pottery supplies, houses a small gallery and gift shop, studio, and offers workshops, lessons, parties. Owned and operated by Rosemary and a small army of friends, volunteers and employees, we are a pottery and clay educational resource for the community.
The doors are always open, come say 'Hi' to Loosey and Frodo!

Also located within the building is The Fiederlein Gallery. A beautifully curated gallery with hand made, locally sourced art, homegoods and giftware.

'No experience needed' workshops

A great way to spend time with friends, family, colleagues or your favourite teen. If you’re coming from work or just peckish feel free to bring along your supper/snack/drink. We have tea and coffee.

Connect with clay over the holidays

At Dundee Pottery there are 2 options to enjoy some time with family or friends.

#1 – Join us and try your hands at the wheel.

No experience necessary, but it’s nearly impossible to do this with long nails…

Open to adults 14 and up. If you’d like to bring someone younger (4 and up) we can arrange for some handbuilding activities to happen simultaneously and allow them some wheel time once you can guide them through it.

It’s too short of a time to develop the skills to make something worth keeping so bring your cameras for the memories. Did we mention… It’s nearly impossible to do this with long nails…

You will need to bring a towel to cover your lap, dress in layers (it can be draughty), a cheery disposition and a good story and a play list if you have one.

$50.00 + HST (56.50)/adult

$20.00 + HST (22.60)/ child

Sign up

#2 – Handbuilding – a family affair.

Using clay coils each participant will be able to make their own bowl. Using underglazes you can decorate it after it’s made. I will fire, glaze and have them ready at the end of the month. If you already have a favourite bring it along, you can use it for a mold.

This is a great activity for anyone in your family 5 and up.

$35.00 + HST (39.55)

What you need to know before pottery class

Everything you need to know to get started.

What to wear

Dress comfortably.

You'll need short nails, hair tied back, and it's best to remove jewelry, watches etc. The clay does wash out but old clothes are recommended. The studio can be cool, so dress in layers.

What to bring

A can do attitude.

You'll need a large towel, an apron if you have one and 3 songs to add to the playlist, a story or two (true or otherwise).

General notes, rules and etiquette

As you progress through lessons you'll move from simple to more complex forms and be challenged to develop your skills. Novice or experienced potter, you can expect to cut many of your pots in half as part of the learning process.

All of our lesson fees include clay, use of tools, and instruction. We keep our classes small and incorporate all levels with an emphasis on setting your own goals.
For our 8 week programs the first six weeks of the session are dedicated to making while weeks seven and eight are spent on trimming, waxing and glazing.
The number of pots taken home is limited -approximately 2 cubic feet (space in the gas kiln) is allotted to each student per session.
While we try to be accommodating when helping you make up a class, it is your responsibility to make sure you finish all classes by the end of the session, and any unused hours are not transferable or refundable.

Glaze firing costs

Rosemary can answer any questions that might come up with regards to measuring.

Width + Height / 2 = Glaze firing cost

Empty bowls

October 14, 2024

Every year in October, Dundee Pottery works with other local businesses and organizations to host a fundraising dinner for Haiti.
When you buy a ticket to Empty Bowls, you get an evening of community and entertainment, a delicious soup, a handmade pottery bowl - and an opportunity to support sustainable growth and change in Haiti.
Funds raised by Empty Bowls will be used to support MCC's tree planting efforts in Haiti. MCC (Mennonite Central Committe) has had a presence in Hiati since 1958, they strive to work with local groups and communities to meet the goals identified in that community.

Dundee Artisan Festival

May 11, 2024

We all love making, creating, "craft"-ing! Making things with our hands not only brings joy, but has the potential to change the world.
Historically, industry and the manufacturing of goods happened in communities, by talented local people whose skill contributed to their communities, supported their families, and fed their souls. Community members of all ages were engaged in this process – think cobblers, bakers, carpenters, potters. Engagement with craft motivates, inspires, and delights!
My hope is to bring together diverse crafts and talents through the "Dundee Artisan Festival", where we can share our skill, knowledge and the "craft" that gives us life.
Visit the Dundee Artisan Festival website.
