Pottery Classes Fall 2022

The fall session of classes at the PEI Potters Studio will begin the week of September 26 and run for a 10 week period. 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 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. Classes available: A class for children ages 9 to 14 will be held on Saturdays from 10 to 12 from Sept 24 to December 3. Please note that there will be no class on October 8 due to the Thanksgiving weekend. Registration fee is $200 and includes all necessary materials. Adult beginner classes will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays (choose one) from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. The Monday night class will be held from September 26 to November 28 . The Tuesday night class will be held from October 4 to December 6. The registration fee is $250, which includes one 20lb block of clay that should last the whole session. Additional clay may be purchased if necessary. All other necessary materials are provided. Class registration: Registration will take place online. It will open on Thursday, September 8 from 7-9pm and the link will be posted on this site, www.peipottersstudio.com. 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. Kids classes will remain on a first-registered basis. 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. After the 48 hour period, any remaining spots will be offered to those next in the randomized draw. We accept E-transfer, cheque or cash.

I have my own potters wheel and clay at home but have not done pottery in a while - I heard that that there is a form to apply to belong to use the studio when there aren't any classes going on - I do not own a kiln - I also would be interested in learning more about glazes and loading, firing a kiln. Please let me know how to apply - Karen
