Our Saturday workshops are a great way to spend two Saturdays, creating and enjoying the company of others.  This fall we are offering four different Saturday sessions, each one dedicated to the creation of something new and unique and no experience required!  Register for one or choose to register for all four-it’s your choice!

Instructors are Medalta’s resident artists, who come from across Canada and around the world to work at Medalta and live in our community. These artists bring their own techniques, expertise and vision to each class. They may be sculptors, potters or designers and are excited to share their knowledge with you. All pottery classes are held at the Shaw Centre, where these artists’ studios are. Classes are casual, safe, fun and encouraging spaces to explore your own creativity and watch it come to life in your own hands.

Fruit Bowl Making @ Medalta

Instructor: Olivia Rozema

Registration Deadline: October 1st, 2017

Project: Who says sculpture can’t be utilitarian? Join Olivia in making a dual functioning piece: On one hand, it’s a fruit bowl, on the other hand, it’s a topographical map of our beautiful Medicine Hat landscape. Or maybe you’ll want to make it a sculpture of your favourite childhood space.

Whatever it will be, Olivia will help you realize it in this 2 day workshop.
