The Ontario Government has issued a province-wide Stay-At-Home order starting Thursday, April 8 at 12:01AM. Case rates, hospitalizations, and ICU occupancy are increasing rapidly, threatening to overwhelm the health care system. Ontario is at a tipping point and we must do everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Ailsa Craig Village Pottery will remain closed during the Stay At Home Order. We are allowed to provide curbside service, so if there is something you wish please phone, email or send a message on our contact page and we will be very happy to help. Please stay safe, get a vaccine as soon as possible.
My pottery shop is considered non essential and must be closed except for curbside service which is difficult for a pottery shop. As of now the lockdown will end May 20. I have had my first vaccine, the second is to be sometime in July. Like all self employed it will be a quiet season again this year. It is doubtful that Craft Shows will be allowed. For my dear friends and customers from America going to the Stratford Festival I miss you. The border is closed until..... well who knows. The Stratford Festival has transformed into an outdoor festival and cabaret starting June 24 that will hark back to the Festival’s founding under a tent back in 1953. So if you are in the area you are most welcome to stop by and we can sit by the pond.
