The City of Campbell River Recreation & Culture Department is offering a wide range of pottery experiences this fall.

If you already have experience working with clay, we have two drop-in times offered: Thursdays between 5 and 9 p.m. and Fridays from 1-5 p.m. at the Community Centre. The cost of drop-in is $3 per person per hour, and families are welcome.

On Saturday, Oct. 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the city will offer a Sprigs and Rollers program where class participants will design and make their own sprigs and a roller tool to embellish pottery projects. A sprig is a design made into a mold. These are very unique design tools that you will use over and over again on many different projects. The cost for the workshop is $55 or $48 for 50+ members.

Holiday Pottery classes will be offered on Mondays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Nov. 28 to Dec. 16. Participants will make Christmas ornaments, a holiday serving tray and a snowman tea light holder – excellent gifts for someone special. No previous experience is necessary for these classes, and all supplies are included. The cost for the five sessions is $86 or $67 for 50+ members.

Another session of Clay Mates for children in Grades 2 to 6 Grades 2-6 will be offered Monday and Thursday from 3:30-5 p.m. from Oct. 17 to Nov. 7. Students should come prepared to get dirty as they’ll explore clay by hand – building, sculpting, glazing and working on the potter’s wheel! The cost is $80 and includes all supplies.

The Christmas in Clay program is for Grades 3 to 6, offered on Mondays and Wednesdays, Nov. 14 to 23 from 3:30-5 p.m. The first week students will make creations, and the second week they will glaze them. Finished projects will be ready for pickup the second week of December, just in time for Christmas. The cost for four classes is $55, all supplies included.
