About BRPG


The Guild supports the community in clay explorations with scholarships to students and teachers for ceramic education. Art teachers attend Guild workshops at no fee. Members will be found demonstrating at local festivals and teaching students in the school systems. Hundreds of hand made bowls are donated each year to help raise money to address hunger in the Roanoke Valley, Floyd County and Patrick County

The first annual Blue Ridge Potters Guild Show and Sale was held at Virginia Western Community College in 2000 with 15 potters. The show grew and moved to Cave Spring High School. It is now the largest all-pottery show in Virginia, with 70 potters displaying work at Patrick Henry High School in October.
