The spring session of pottery classes at the PEI Potters Studio in Victoria Park, Charlottetown will begin in April.
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.
The Tuesday night class will be at the intermediate level and focus more on creating more complex forms and glaze and decoration techniques. Participants will have the opportunity to create their own pieces from start to finish.
Adult beginners classes are offered on Mondays or Thursdats and an intermediate level class will be held on Tuesdays. Adult classes are from 6:30–9:30 pm beginning the week of April 8.
A class for children ages 9–14 will be held on Saturdays from 10–12 beginning April 6.
Classes run for a 10 week period.
