Fall 2014 Pottery Class Registrations: Tue Sep 9 5:30-7pm

Pottery Class Registration

Registration for pottery classes will be held on Tuesday, September 9  from 5:30 -7:00 pm at the P.E.I. Potters Studio in Victoria Park, Charlottetown.

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 beginners class (choose either Tuesday or Thursday evening) covers the basics of clay preparation, wheel-throwing techniques, and glazing and decoration. Hand-building techniques can also be explored depending on interest. The intermediate/advanced class (offered on Monday evenings depending on interest) will focus more on throwing complex forms and on glazing and decorating. 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, and for more advanced adults on Mondays, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm, beginning the week of September 22. Classes for children ages 9 to 14 will be held on Saturdays from either 10:30 to 12:30 or 1:30-3:30 pm  beginning on September 27. Each session runs for a 10 week period.

For more information, please call Barb at 368-3268.
