become part of a unique creative community

At its core, Pewabic is a community of people who care deeply about art, history and craftsmanship. Pewabic members help sustain the pottery as a creative incubator where artists, students, and the public share ideas about ceramics. 

By joining the Pewabic Society you help to preserve a remarkable tradition of craftsmanship that extends back more than a century. In addition, your annual membership support helps provide ceramic art classes for Detroit Public School students, exhibitions of historic and contemporary art, and maintenance and preservation of our National Historic Landmark building and archival collection.

If you are currently a member with us, consider donating today or upgrading your membership level. Individuals 70 1/2 or older can join other tax-savvy Pewabic Society members who choose to make an annual Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)  from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA). With your help, we can continue to foster the art community locally and nationally.
