Still Room in Courses and Workshops at the Guild

Thanks to everyone who came out the the Guild Registration last night! If you missed out – you may still be in luck as there is still space in many of the Guild workshops and classes. Please refer to the Classes page of this website to see which classes still have space in them. If you are interested in signing up, for one of the available spaces in a pottery class you can do so by emailing Michelle at potteryclassesyk@gmail.com. If you’re interested in registering for one of the other mediums (fibre, carving, jewlery, basketry), you can do so by emailing Janice at janiceglee@hotmail.com

Also, please note that there was a typo in the initial class listings. The Large Pots and Lids course with Astrid Kruse is on SUNDAY MORNINGS, not Tuesdays as previously indicated.

Registration Night for Winter AND Spring 2015 Classes Will Be Held on January 8, 2015

Registration for the Yellowknife Guild of Arts and Crafts Pottery and Mixed Media classes will be taking place on Thursday, January 8th from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Guild, located at 113 Kam Lake Road. Classes always fill up quickly, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.  As always, payments are in cash or cheque only and must be made at the time of registration.

For a detailed description of all available classes and a breakdown of class fees, please click on our CLASS DESCRIPTION PAGE. Several of the beginner-level classes are offered more than once, so take note of the available dates.

If you have specific questions about the upcoming classes, please email our class coordinators. For pottery classes, email Michelle at potteryclassesyk@gmail.com and for mixed mediums such as fibre arts, carving, jewlery-making etc. please email Janice at janiceglee@hotmail.com
