Vancouver Pottery Courses
Our Courses are designed for meaningful results. Don't settle for anything less than 8 weeks; our curriculum is curated to maximize skill development. Our goal is to teach you how to feel the clay, so you intuitively understand how to lovingly craft vessels.
My friend and I did a beginner's workshop here last Saturday and we had such a fun experience. Gabrielle and Nicole taught us well, were patient, and were both easy to talk to. If you're curious about pottery and taking some classes, I'd definitely recommend trying their workshops first, it was definitely worth it. 😊
A very fun and welcoming studio! I came with zero pottery experience, and was lucky to have Gabrielle as my instructor for a beginner wheel throwing course. She is a very dedicated teacher, and really cares about helping her students to develop not only their skills for throwing, but also their love and appreciation for clay. Would absolutely recommend!
I loved the beginner wheel class so much, I took it a second time!! Both teachers (Myriam and Gabrielle) were excellent. For someone without prior pottery experience, I found the class and studio very welcoming and a great place to learn!! Can't wait to take more classes and workshops here.
