Pottery Intensive (All-Levels)

Workshop Description

We are thrilled to announce our first pottery intensive with renowned cermicist, Ralph Seely, in our brand-new ceramics studio! This all-experience-level intensive workshop is open to anyone from complete beginners to experienced potters. Each participant is guaranteed 18 hours of throwing on the wheel over the initial 3 days, guided by individualized instruction. Participants will then have a 3 hour session the following week for glazing their unique collections for a total of 21 hours of ceramics education. This will be the inaugural workshop held in our brand new ceramics studio which features triple the square footage, state of the art tools and equipment, and 6 wheels to provide ample time to hone your throwing skills!

As this workshop is open to all experience levels, participants have the option of purchasing clay from the arts centre at the time of the workshop for ($30) with the option to buy more if desired, or bring their own. If bringing your own clay, please contact SJAC before the workshop to confirm that it is safe for our kiln.
