Pottery Market 2022
Application process is open! 

Greetings Capital District Potters!

The Collar City Clay Guild is happy to announce that our annual Pottery Market will be back in full operation this year on Friday, November 18th from 10-6 and Saturday, November 19th from 10-4 at Pat’s Barn. We are anticipating an amazing event that showcases the incredible talents of our members and it couldn’t happen without YOU! This is your invitation to join us, please review the details below.

As costs have risen over the past year, so has the rental fee of Pat’s Barn. The Pottery Market committee reviewed these increases compared with our current booth rental fees and we have decided NOT to raise booth costs.The guild will cover the increases this year and re-evaluate the overall costs next year. Being a member of the Guild comes with the benefit of being able to participate in the annual Market and we are happy to make costs as reasonable as possible.

Being that spaces are assigned first come, first paid – please sign up early and encourage other potters that might be new to participate as well.

Sharing a booth with a friend is also an option which is a great way to share costs and have some fun.

If you are new to pottery, have not done a show before or don’t feel you have enough pieces to warrant a full booth, fear not!  The Guild offers a special booth for you and your work.  Please contact Theresa Zubretsky at tzubrock@gmail.com for full details and to sign up. The Guild booth rental fee is divided up and determined by the total number of potters participants.

Whichever way you choose to join us, our goal is to have all booth spaces occupied.

Whether you join us as a vendor or not, we would still love to have your support in spreading the word about this awesome event by sharing the details and reaching out on your social media accounts. Tag, like, follow and share on Facebook, Instagram, business websites and any other way available to publicize this yearly event. A digital flyer will be coming soon to share, keep an eye out!

If you would like to volunteer contact Arlene Wojtowicz at 518-391-0078 (text or call).  She has opportunities that can be a few hours or all two days. What a better way to spend your weekend than with friendly potters who can’t stop talking about clay!

If Pat’s Barn changes their COVID policies, you will be notified. Currently, masks are optional and proof of vaccination is not required.
