PEI Potters Studio Reopening on June 5 with Restricted Access

We are very pleased to announce that, as part of Phase 3 of Renew PEI, our little studio is reopening with restricted access as of June 5! We have an operational plan in place, approved by the City of Charlottetown, which meets the requirements for physical distancing, enhanced cleaning and other measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. A maximum of 5 people will be allowed in the studio at any one time and work spaces in the main studio room have been assigned to ensure everyone can be 2 metres apart at all times.

Our spring classes were cancelled and the next session will not be held until at least the fall. We will make a decision in mid-August about whether or not we can go ahead with fall classes. Students who were in the winter class session that had to be cancelled part way through may be able to come in to finish their pieces--we will be in touch to make arrangements.

If you have any questions, please contact Barb at bajmacdonald@gmail.com.

Also, the spring class session planned to begin in mid-April has been cancelled and the next session will be held in September.  For information please contact Barb at bajmacdonald@gmail.com.

Spring Class Session CANCELLED

The spring session of pottery classes at the PEI Potters Studio in Victoria Park, Charlottetown will begin in April, 2020.    

Perfect for beginners as well as those with previous experience, classes are taught by professional Island potters and are designed to be fun as well as educational. Classes are small in size (a maximum of 8) and relaxed and informal in style. The class covers the basics of clay preparation, wheel-throwing techniques, and glazing and decoration. Hand-building techniques can also be explored depending on interest. A great way to relieve stress and enhance creativity while learning a new skill, participants will have the opportunity to create their own pieces from start to finish.


Adult beginners classes will be offered on Mondays or Tuesdays (choose one) from 6:30 to 9:30 pm beginning the week of April 13 for a 10 week period. The cost is $225, which includes a 20 lb block of clay.
