Lessons and Classes at JoVic Pottery

After more than 3 decades of working as professional potters, we are able to provide students from all walks with instruction in a vast array of techniques for both the hobby potter, the professional potter, or even just as a form of relaxing entertainment. We’ve been teaching for years, from individual students, to special interest groups to master classes for the seasoned potter or for potters’ guilds.

We have also spent a number of years instructing students from Stz’uminus First Nations, incorporating cultural design and providing lessons for both adult basic education and high school classes to students coming out to our studio along with their teachers.
