Upcoming Pottery Courses

Pottery in the Park
Registration for pottery classes will be held on Tuesday, January 4 from  5 -7 pm at the P.E.I. Potters Studio in Victoria Park, Charlottetown.
Perfect for beginners as well as those with some 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. Instruction in the beginners class covers the basics of clay preparation, wheel-throwing techniques, and glazing and decorating. 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..
Classes for adult beginners are held on Thursdays from 6:30 to 9:30 pm beginning on January 13. An intermediate/advanced adult class will be offered on Tuesdays from 6:30-9:30 pm beginning January 10. Classes for children are held on Saturdays beginning January 8, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm for aged 9 to 11 and from 1:30-3:30 pm for children aged 12 to 14. 
For more information call Barb at 368-3268.

The PEI Pottery Studio -- a co-operative pottery studio currently located in beautiful Victoria Park in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island is starting this new blog for its members.

In the upcoming weeks, we'll be updating this blog with content from different members, and information about the next set of pottery classes starting in January 2011.  We hope that this space will become a co-operative venture, like our Pottery Studio, for our members to use and enjoy.

Happy Potting!
