The PEI Potters Studio is a co-operative pottery studio for both new and experienced potters. We offer 10-week pottery classes for beginner and advanced potters that normally start in Sept, Jan and then either Mar or Apr. Our studio is open to our members whenever classes are not taking place. Membership can be purchased monthly or annually.
For those interested in registering for a class, unfortunately things filled up very quickly and both adult classes are now full. There are still openings for the childrens class on Saturdays at 10 am.
The fall session of pottery classes at the PEI Potters Studio in Victoria Park, Charlottetown will begin the week of September 30 and run for a 10 week period.
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 are offered on Tuesdays or Thursdays (choose one) from 6:30 to 9:30 pm beginning the week of September 30. A class for children ages 9 to 14 will be held on Saturdays from 10 to 12 beginning on September 28.
The annual fundraising sale for the PEI Potters Studio will be held on Saturday, August 17 from 9 am to noon at the Confederation Court Mall in Charlottetown. Look for us in the upstairs area near the food court (please follow the signs to find us).
Work by studio members and students, as well as professional Island potters, will be available at great prices! The PEI Potters Studio is a non-profit cooperative dedicated to the promotion of the art of pottery making in PEI. Funds raised from the sale will help the studio provide opportunities for children and adults to learn about and enjoy working with clay. For more information contact Judy at 902-394-0941.
