Event description

Description

Join us for a day trip to Medicine Hat to visit Medalta’s iconic beehive kilns and old ceramics factory, an early and un-altered reminder of the beginning of Western Canada’s industrial revolution. We will visit Medalta’s artist-in-residence centre where Pierre Aupilardjuk, Shary Boyle, and John Kurok created some of the artwork on exhibition at Esker. We will tour a working studio as Medalta staff create pottery using historic machines and methods from over a century ago. Bus transportation to and from Medalta and lunch from a local café will be provided. Unfortunately, this program is not wheelchair accessible.

Registration essential.
