Information on Pottery Classes Winter 2023

The winter session of classes at the PEI Potters Studio will begin the week of January 9, 2023 and run for 10 weeks. 

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 beginning on Jan 7, 2023. Please note that there will be no classes on Feb 18, Feb 25 and March 4 due to the Canada Games and March break. Registration fee is $210 and includes all necessary materials. 
  • Adult beginner classes will be held on Mondays and Thursdays (choose one) from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. The Monday night class will be held from January 9 to March 13, 2023. The Thursday night class will be held from January 12 to March 16. The registration fee is $275, 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 Tuesday, December 13 from 7-9pm and the link will be posted on this site, 

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. For further information, please email
