POTTERY IN THE PARK -- Fall 2011 and Winter 2012 Adult's Classes

P.E.I Potters Studio at Victoria Park (small white house next to tennis courts)

Adult Classes
Classes are taught by professional Island potters and are designed to be fun as well as educational. Perfect for beginners as well as those with some experience, classes are small in size (maximum of 8) and relaxed and informal in style. Instruction 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 get a thorough introduction to the art of pottery making and have fun while creating their own pieces from start to finish.
