The City of Pickering continues to offer Recreation and Leisure services for residents that enrich their lives through meaningful programming.  Now that Durham Region has re-entered the red zone, the City’s of Pickering’s Pottery Studio will be returning for “Open Studio” timeslots beginning the week of March 1, 2021.  Pottery Open Studio times allow members to pre-register for a 90 minute timeslot each day, to create their own project under the guidance and supervision of knowledgeable and passionate staff.  Please note that in order to use the Open Studio timeslots, an annual membership is required.

The health and well-being of our community is our highest priority and with a carefully planned approach, the Pottery studio will be ready to welcome you back safely.
