Toronto Potters was founded in 1979 as a non-profit, volunteer-run association. For almost four decades the association has been committed to the organizing and sponsorship of clay-related activities that contribute to the artistic growth of its members.
From meetings with guest speakers to annual sales and exhibitions, Toronto Potters’ objective is to organize and provide opportunities to its membership for the learning, development, engagement and support of the ceramic arts.
This Fall/Winter 2020, Toronto Potters’ is hosting numerous classes at its Artscape Youngplace studio for both beginners and advanced artists. Each class is taught by professional artists in both pottery and wheel:
Want to give creating with clay a try? This class will introduce you to a variety of hand building and pottery wheel skills and decorating techniques – all fun! Learn decorative techniques at all stages of making.
Build your skill at throwing on the potter’s wheel. The class will explore the qualities of clay, while learning to create cylinders, bowls, handles, and feet. Throwing demonstrations by the instructor will stress an appreciation of good craftsmanship. Learn decorative techniques at all stages of making.
Each class is limited to four to ensure physical distancing and numerous health and safety protocols have been established. There’s numerous sessions to choose from in the upcoming schedule.
In the summer, Artscape’s Assistant Manager, Galleries and Exhibitions, Naia Wang, chatted with Susan Card to showcasing the studio and the work by Toronto Potters for the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair. You can learn see the full conversation on @artscapeTO.
