Field Trip Notice:
On Friday December 21, 2012, Grade 5 will be having in an indoor field trip that will be held in the school gym. We have invited the Gloucester School of Pottery to come into Abraar School to work with the kids creating their own pottery. There will be no extra charges as the cost will be deducted from activity fees that you have paid in the beginning of the year. They will be exploring different material through sculpturing.
A little about the pottery school:
The Gloucester Pottery School was founded in 1991. They are an incorporated not-for-profit organization with a volunteer Board of Directors.
They have grown from a very small entity operating out of a basement studio in the Cyrville Community Centre. Over the years they have expanded into the whole of CCC’s basement.
Their fully equipped teaching studio has 19 electric potter’s wheels, 4 electric kilns, a Bailey Gas Kiln purchased in 2011, a pugmill, slab roller, wall extruder, spray booth, and state-of-the-art cleaning facilities. The studio is also available for practice on a membership basis.
They offer over 80 pottery courses a year (some in French) for adults and teens from Level 1 through to Professional Wheel-throwing including (off wheel) Handbuilding classes. Their courses run on a semester basis starting each September, February, April and July and are taught by nine experienced instructors.
