Let your children be creative in the pottery classes offered through the City of Campbell River Recreation & Culture Department this fall.
The popular Claymates programs begin this fall at the end of September. Beginner classes for Grades 6 and up are held on Mondays, starting Sept. 24. Classes for Grades 2 to 5 are held on Thursdays, starting Sept. 27. Both classes are held between 3:30 and 5 p.m. at the Community Centre. Students will exercise their creativity learning hand building, sculpting and glazing techniques, plus work on the potter’s wheel. The cost of the six-week programs is $80.
Something new this fall is the Claymates Sampler program. Home-school families can participate in a pottery program designed just for them on Thursdays, starting Sept. 27 between noon and 2 p.m. The cost of the program is $42. The other Claymates Sampler program will be held on the first Pro-D Day, Friday, Oct. 19 between 9 a.m. and noon. The cost of the program is $18.
There is also a new adult and child pottery program on Saturdays, starting Oct. 6 between 12:30 and 3 p.m. at the Community Centre. Both adult and child are encouraged to participate together in this program with each paying $67.
Also starting this year, pottery birthday parties. A one-hour pottery class will be provided, with children having the opportunity to make starfish or plaques. Also, a room will be provided for cake and gifts. Eight children can participate in the birthday party for a cost of $150. To book a pottery birthday party, allow at least three weeks to coordinate arrangements and contact Linda Kubinec at the Community Centre (250-286-1161 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org).
