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. 

Registration is online and is first come first serve. It will open on Monday, March 30 at 9 am. For more information please contact Barb at bajmacdonald@gmail.com.
