First some General Info about pottery classes at Pine Ridge :
All classes are here at the Studio which is at 6114 Carp Road, Kinburn Ont. K0A 2H0. It’s a long driveway, you won’t see the Studio from the road!
Due to the continuing Covid-19 concerns, classes will be limited to 5 students, and only people who are completely vaccinated can register.
All materials and firing are included. Fees are normally paid at the first session. I take cash, cheques, credit and debit cards and e-transfers!
To register for any class, just contact me.
I have had a great many requests for classes lately. Since I can only take a few students, you may want to also take a look at Hintonburg Pottery or Almonte Potter’s Guild. Both run excellent classes and I believe they are open. As for Pine Ridge pottery classes, here’s the plan:
- Beginner’s Class: Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9pm. $60, 6 sessions, all materials and firing included. You’ll learn basic techniques such as making a small pinch pot, and get a chance to try a variety of ways of making something from clay. This is an introduction to clay only and concentrates on hand-building. It does not include using the potter’s wheel because I have only 2 wheels and that isn’t enough to accommodate more than 2 students. This will start on February 8, 2022. Class will be limited to 5 students.
- Projects Class: Thursday evenings, 7 to 9pm, $15 per session or $60 for 6 sessions. You will choose your own project. Most pottery projects take at least 2 sessions, one to make the work, and one to decorate/glaze it. (After that you will need to come to pick up your finished work, but that doesn’t count as a session.) Some projects will take more than 2 sessions: you will know how many sessions once you plan your project. All materials, within reason, and firing are included. Working on the wheel can be a project, but only 2 or possibly 3 people will be able to do that. For this class you will need at least some pottery skills. Starts February 10, 2022. Class will be limited to 5 people per session.
