Pottery Class Information: Jan - Mar, 2022 * COVID UPDATE 20-DEC-2021

UPDATE 20-DEC-2021

Given the rapidly changing situation right now, we are postponing the registration for the winter classes to at least January.   We don't want to cancel the upcoming classes unless we have to, but at the least, they will start later in January than initially planned.

Thanks and take care. 

Pottery Classes—Winter session 2022

The winter session of pottery classes at the PEI Potters Studio will begin in mid January 2022 for a 10 week period. In the event of bad weather, the class will be postponed and added on to the end of the session.

Please note that proof of vaccination is required for entry to classes as per the guidelines outlined by the province. Proof of vaccination will be done in the first class but not subsequent classes. 

Classes available: 
A class for children ages 9 to 14 will be held on Saturdays from 10 to 12 from January 8 to March 19. Please note that there will be no class on February 19. Registration fee is $175 and includes all necessary materials.

Adult beginner classes will be held on Mondays and Thursdays (choose one) from 6:30 to 9:30 pm beginning the week of January 10 until the week of March 14. The registration fee is $225, which includes one 20lb block of clay that should last the whole session. Additional clay may be purchased if necessary. 

Class registration:
Registration will take place on line. Due to the small size of our studio we can only accommodate a maximum of 8 students per class. Since there is a large demand for classes, and since Internet speeds differ it has been difficult to ensure that the first come first serve approach is working. So in order to be as fair as possible to everyone, we have decided to use a computer generated lottery system for registration in adult classes for this next session.

The winter 2022 class online registration will open on December 22nd from 7-9pm and the link will be posted on this site, Once the registration period is over, everyone who has signed up for each class will be entered into a software program that will choose names randomly. Those who have been randomly chosen will be contacted as soon as possible to confirm interest and payment will be required within 48 hours to hold your spot. We accept E-transfer, cheque or cash.
Co-op membership: 
Once adults have completed a beginners’ class, they are eligible to join the studio as a co-op member, with a $10 co-op fee and an annual fee of $240.  We are currently at full capacity so any interested person would be added to our waiting list instead of being added right away.  New members are admitted in April of each year based on open spaces available.
