Kamloops Arts and Crafts Club maintains a pottery studio in Heritage House in space rented from the City of Kamloops. Use of the studio is restricted to member potters who have taken a recent class at Kamloops Arts & Crafts Club. The studio is operated in the spirit of co-operation and mutual respect and in that spirit, we provide members with shared studio space and equipment, access to resource materials, classes and workshops, display and sales support and other pottery related activities.
Use of the studio is restricted to member potters who have taken a recent class at Kamloops Arts & Crafts Club and the studio may not be used to create pieces for sale at other than KACC sponsored sales and shows. Anyone 16 years and older interested in any aspect of the arts and crafts is invited to join Kamloops Arts and Crafts Club. The pottery studio is open to potters from 8 am to midnight to give potters the opportunity to practice at their leisure. Membership is $60/year August 1st to July 31 (pro-rated for those starting in other months). Seniors 65 and older pay a $40 membership. There are three main avenues with the KACC; Fibre Arts, Painting and Pottery. Benefits of club membership are reduced course and workshop fees, use of the club equipment for a number of crafts, extensive libraries of books, magazines, videos and newsletters covering a variety of interests, a monthly newsletter providing members with information on club activities and happenings, and the opportunity to sell their art at the club's two annual artisan sales. Pottery classes are open to residents of Kamloops and the surrounding area.
From time to time we offer wheel throwing and hand building classes; continue to check our website for future pottery classes. The studio is equipped with wedging and working tables, slab roller, large and a small extruder, a number of electric wheels and electric top loading kilns. The glaze area is equipped with all the sundry equipment necessary for preparation and application of slips and glazes. In addition, members have access to an extensive library of pottery books, magazines and videos.
