bethlehem pottery club membership

Bethlehem Pottery Club is a not for profit club run by volunteers.

We expect all members to contribute to making our club thrive and run successfully.

With the rising popularity of clay, membership to the club closed in late May and the reopening of club membership will be reviewed in mid-late July, 2024. 

Applications are tabled and considered at a BPC Committee Meeting. All new members must have completed a six week wheel and or hand building class run by BPC, as well as completing an induction before becoming a full member. 

If you have any questions regarding membership, feel free to contact us.
