As part of BC Culture Days, we’re celebrating the art of ceramics!
Watch ceramic artist Gale Woodhouse work her magic on the potter’s wheel! Gale makes throwing a bowl look easy, but it has taken 40 years of practice and hard work to develop her skills. Gale will be throwing small scale domestic ware forms that she usually produces in her home studio. She will answer any questions from the audience and address design considerations when throwing mugs, jugs, bowls, small plates, and other kitchen items. If you want to learn a little more about this versatile art form or just enjoy the process, be sure to reserve a seat in the Pottery Studio and enjoy the day.
Demonstrations will be held at the Vernon Community Arts Centre on Wednesday, October 5th between 1pm-4pm or 5pm-8pm. Space is limited, so call ahead to reserve a seat: 250-542-6243
Demonstration is free to watch. Donations are welcomed to help cover VCAC costs of supplies and materials.
More about Gale: Gale first trained and apprenticed in England as a production potter. Her early production work was strongly influenced by both English and French farmhouse ware. Now living in British Columbia, Canada, Gale continues to produce highly functional domestic work. Since her time in Canada, the focus of Gale’s work has been mainly large and small scale sculptural pieces based upon the forms and textures she encounters at home and when travelling.
In addition to her work in clay, Gale creates mixed media abstract paintings and prints, which often compliment the work she does in clay. As a qualified and proven teacher of art and design, Gale offers a variety of workshops in all media at the beginner through to master level artists in their field.
