Pottery Classes Winter 2024

The winter session of classes at the PEI Potters Studio will begin the week of January 8 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. 

Adult beginner classes will be held on Mondays and Thursdays (choose one) from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. The registration fee is $275 and includes a 20lb block of clay. 

Beginning on Jan. 6, a class for children ages 9 to 14 will be held on Saturdays from 9 to 11 and, depending on demand, from 11:30 to 1:30 (TBC). The registration fee is $210 and includes reclaim clay. 

Registration is online and will be open on Tuesday, December 12 from 7 to 8 pm.

Once the registration period is over, everyone who has signed up for adult classes will be entered into a software program that will choose names randomly, while the registration for the kids classes will be in order of the registration time. Those who have been randomly chosen will be contacted as soon as possible. 

The link to the registration form will appear on December 12 at 7 pm.
