The annual Village Potters Guild of Plymouth Holiday Market is set for Nov. 17,18 and 19 this year.

The guild, a decades old organization. was formed to promote and develop the art of ceramics. The common interest of members is to bring handmade ceramic items to everyday life.  As a community pottery workspace in Plymouth, Village Potters Guild members strive to promote and develop the art of ceramics and support area artists. For more than 28 years, the guild has conducted outreach activities to encourage participation, awareness and appreciation of ceramics as an art form.

The sale this year will include works of artist members, as well as invited guest artists, offering a variety of functional and decorative ceramics for purchase, organizers said. 

The annual event will take place in the historic factory district of Plymouth, at 326 North Main St., just north of the railroad tracks.  Guild members will transform the 2,000-square-foot studio workspace into a holiday marketplace with items that are great for gift giving, organizers said. There will be a large selection of mugs, bowls, platters and vases, along with a festive variety of ornaments and holiday-themed items, along with some original fine art offerings including paintings, woodcraft, jewelry and others.
