create. glaze. fire.

Mission Arts Pottery Studio is open for supervised open sessions with an experienced potter 5 days a week. One of our dedicated volunteer potters will be on hand to offer assistance Mondays (11am-3pm), Tuesdays and Thursdays (5pm-8:30pm), Saturdays and Sundays (10am-2pm). Open to all skill levels. New members, seasonal visitors and beginners are welcome to come and 'play with clay'.

Please note: Although the supervised sessions are open to everyone at all levels of experience (beginners to advanced), the supervised sessions are not designed to be a one-on-one tutorial nor as a substitute for basic introductory level pottery courses and workshops, which are offered from time to time.

Supervisors are on hand to answer your pottery questions to help bring your creative vision to life.
