The Red Wing Collectors Society Foundation endeavors to broaden public knowledge of the historical nature and role of Red Wing stoneware, art pottery and dinnerware in American culture and history. To support its educational goals, the Pottery Museum has thousands of pottery pieces and artifacts on display. In addition to pottery, the Museum contains photos, catalogues and brochures as well as many other historical documents. The Foundation encourages and supports scholarly activity and research that will result in new knowledge and publications.
Educational efforts include community outreach programs, pottery history lessons, and educational videos. Many dedicated and committed pottery collectors can be made available to share their vast knowledge of the Red Wing pottery industry. The Museum is a frequent destination for bus and boat tours, school and university programs, antique dealers, antique clubs, service clubs, and community education classes.
Many of our passionate collectors have become experts and share their knowledge through classes held at the Pottery Museum. To further public knowledge of Red Wing pottery, our experts also participate in special presentations at other venues such as the Minnesota History Center.
