Classes

Do you want to learn pottery? Or do you want a chance to play with clay? Come join my outdoor pottery class. Autumn and halloween themed projects covering the most popular hand-building techniques – perfect for beginners, and fun for those with pottery experience.

Limited to 5 participants for each session, these classes will be held outdoors in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery – where there are lots of socially distanced picnic tables to work on. If it rains we will duck into the covered area or go under Robson Square on the other side of the VAG. Everyone will need to dress for the weather.

Five Saturdays in October:
1:00 – 3:00pm, Teens 13-17 years
3:30 – 5:30 pm, adults
$150 per person for 5 classes and includes all materials and tools

Each participant will receive their own kit containing basic tools and a portable work surface to use during the 5 week course. Once I hand this over to you, these will be yours to work with, clean, and put back into a bag I will provide for you – ensuring no one will touch your tools but you! I will bring, take away and store the kits each class, so you will not need to carry these things. The clay will also be pre-portioned for you each class. Soap, water, sanitizer and surface wipes will all be provided for on-site. Each participant will be required to wear a mask.
