Clay Open Studio
Continue your ceramics journey with your own personalized projects in the Clay Open Studio!
This open studio allows students to practice on the wheel, handbuilding or finish work started in class. Clay used in open studio must be purchased separately through the Centre Box Office.
Only work produced at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre from clay purchased here can be fired in our kilns. These sessions are not designed to accommodate production potters, nor are they designed for private instruction, but to allow students to independently develop their skills. Work created during this session will be glazed during a scheduled open studio.
• Glazing Dates: TBD
On May 25th we received authorization to begin our Phase 2 reopening of the Cultural Centre. Click here for our COVID-19 Statement. While this phase will start slowly, it will unfortunately not include the reopening of either the HUB International Theatre or the Rotary Hall Studio Theatre for performances. However, the Clay Open Studio returns this week.
For the time being, the Clay Open Studio will not be available on a drop in basis.
Open Studio hours will be 10:00am to 2:00 pm Monday through Friday (not open on holidays).
Participants will be required to wear face coverings at all times (we will lend you a non-medical cloth mask if you do not have your own). All participants will be required to observe strict social distancing protocols ensuring that people stay a minimum of two meters (six feet) apart. Tools may not be shared by participants without being sanitized between uses.
Participants will have to register in advance with the box office in order to ensure that the number of attendees is limited to those that are able to affect strict social distancing.
You will only be able to register for two sessions per week, and registrations will be on a rolling basis starting four days prior to each session. Those that sign up to be the volunteer will be able to register for two sessions in a week plus their volunteer sessions.
Participants will be limited to six at a time (including the technician when they are in and the volunteer). We will have up to four spaces for those wishing to use a pottery wheel, and up to two spaces at the hand-building table.
All other Open Studio programs are cancelled for the time being.
Please contact the Centre Box Office at 604-391-SHOW(7469) to register for the Clay Open Studio sessions.
We look forward to welcoming you back!
