Pottery Classes

If you’re looking to visit a Vancouver pottery studio, you’re in the right place! At the West End Community Centre, we host a range of pottery classes and our pottery sessions are open to everyone – from seasoned potters to those of you who are new to throwing pottery.

Why take pottery classes?

Pottery classes are a great way to home-in on your creative skills and our students are often impressed by how quickly and easily they take to the pottery wheel. Taking a ceramics course is also a great way to make new friends, build artistic confidence, and provides a calming outlet for those of us with hectic lifestyles.

Whether you’re looking to take beginner pottery classes or advance your established ceramics knowledge, we’re confident that you’ll find the pottery class for you at the West End Community Centre.
