  • Priority and first-opportunity to participate will be given to members of SDPCG! Registration is open NOW , so reserve your seat at the clay table early!
  • A second stage registration, beginning June 15th , will be opened to non-members and Orange County guild members who are not members of SDPCG.

  • It has easy access from the main highway, free parking
  • A fabulous taco and fast Mexican food eatery right across the parking lot for an easy lunch option
  • The workshop room is on the first floor, wheel-chair (and roller-bag) accessible, and just down the hall from the main lobby/lounge, which has coffee available.
