Love Pottery

1022 West Harvey Ave, Dorset, Ontario

Owner Tara moved from Toronto in 2007 to pursue her dream of becoming a full-time potter and business owner. She put down roots as Chetolah Pottery Studio in Dorset and has been building, growing and changing ever since. Her pottery studio eventually expanded to a cafe, and after meeting her wife Cait, it grew a yoga studio.

Now, Love Pottery (renamed in 2019) offers handmade ceramics, along with pottery classes for children and adults, locally made soaps, delicious espresso drinks, and textiles brought back from winter travels abroad. It also includes The Open Space yoga studio and hosts LoveFest Dorset each summer. Tara believes that her life, just like her pottery, is a work of art – to be lived whimsically grounded and from the heart. The latest expansion includes moving out of the small loft over her studio into a newly built home steps away from the shop. Come visit and discover the larger updated gallery space and new studio space this season.
