Get your hands dirty and design a seaside inspired clay creation, under the expert guidance of potter Gabriella Valeria Kardosi,

GVKpottery, located at Cottage Living on Marine Drive, opened her East Beach studio last November to offer community clay classes alongside her own ceramic practices.

Classes are being offered from now through June, and are designed for beginner and intermediate students. Set in a casual and creative studio environment with small class sizes, this series of clay classes offers a fun way to explore your creative side with family and friends. And, you’ll finish your class with decorative and functional pottery that you’ll be thrilled to use or gift.

Upcoming Classes include:

Appetizer platter and dip dishes

Create your own appetizer platter with a pair of matching dip or spread dishes. Learn how to use a variety of handbuilding forms, moulds and tools to manipulate clay into beautifully shaped platters and dishes. This two-session class will cover several glaze colour options and application techniques.
