Pottery grows (photo gallery)

The pleasures of art, science, craft and creativity are mined out of lumps of moist clay when Red Deer Pottery Club members meet each Tuesday evening from 7 to 10 p.m.

It’s a craft as old as civilization itself

The pleasures of art, science, craft and creativity are mined out of lumps of moist clay when Red Deer Pottery Club members meet each Tuesday evening from 7 to 10 p.m.

Club members share studio space in the basement Contour Studio at the Red Deer Recreation Centre, producing common items that are present in any home — bowls, vases, mugs — but that also serve as the artistic expressions of their makers.

The club has been hard at work preparing items for their annual Christmas show and sale at the Rec Centre last weekend, but there’s always another project to create.

Anyone interested in learning more about the club or joining a class can either contact the Recreation Centre or drop in on a Tuesday evening club session to get more information.
