  • FAQ

    Q: Will I be using the potter's wheel?

    A: No, this workshop is building from slab (think putting a pie crust in a pie shell and you have the idea)

    Q: Do you offer courses to learn throwing on the wheel?

    A: No, we do not.

    Q: Do you plan to offer courses to learn throwing on the wheel?

    A: Not at this time. Should that change, this FAQ will be updated. 

    If you are looking to learn throwing on the wheel, you can check out the PEI Potters' Studio and Robert McMillan Pottery.

    Q: I'm just one person, can I get put on a list to be with others to make up a group of 4?

    A: Not at this time. A majority of customers are telling us they prefer to be in groups of people that they know due to COVID

    Q: Do you offer children's birthday parties?

    A: Yes and no. The workshop is not targeted at a specific age group. Our best guidance is this: if the participant can focus on a single activity for 2 hours then it is an appropriate activity. The workshop provides facilitation and guides participants through each step of the pottery making process. Child supervision is not offered and children 12 and under must have an adult present. A supervising adult is only charged a registration fee if making pottery.
