Opened in 1948 by Jimmie Clennell and Selma Caverly, Pinecroft is considered to be Canada’s oldest continuously operating pottery studio. Tucked away in a 54 acre pine forest, this thriving family-run establishment has produced fine quality earthenware and stoneware pottery for 65 years. Second generation studio potter Brenda (Caverly) Smith offers a wide range of functional pieces including complete dinner sets. High fired reduction ware is wheel thrown with some slab work. Classes and hands-on workshops are offered in fall and winter in the teaching studio.
Pinecroft also features the work of Tony Clennell (MFA, RCA), who recently joined the studio as an associate potter. Tony is an adjunct professor at Sheridan College and has taught workshops in Canada, USA, Japan, China and Italy.
For the full Pinecroft experience, visit the Green Frog Tea Room for lunch, relax at the massage hut and stay the night at Selma’s Cabin B&B.
