PotteryWorks is a multi-media art studio located in New Westminster that supports, teaches and promotes artists overcoming disability through the practice of art and craft. Our primary goal at PotteryWorks is to support community inclusion for our artists. We teach and promote them to become valued members of their communities and to be recognized for their abilities and contributions. PotteryWorks was started in June 2000, with six artists and a few supplies kept in a closet at a Community Living Society Day Program. Over the past 20 years, it has grown to include The Colour Collective painting group and the Snap Photo Club. The artists in these groups exhibit their work all over the Lower Mainland. Today, there are approximately 50 artists who use the PotteryWorks studio.
