Plainsman Pottery Supply
Plainsman Pottery Supply is constructed on the former Alberta Clay Products Co. Ltd. site. On the lower section of this 100-year-old photograph, the Plainsman facility is superimposed. ACP was the second-largest brick producer in North America. The facility and high-temperature kilns were all built with bricks and firebricks produced in a nearby temporary kiln (using clay mined nearby). Outside bricks were not purchased. The company made a variety of bricks, but it was most known for its vitrified salt-glazed pipe, which was utilized in sewage and water lines throughout the west.

“One of my favorite places to go with my mom to hang out and catch up. You can create fun projects, presents and memories. I’ve had birthdays there as a kid and still enjoy it as an adult. They have an array of items to paint ranging from beginner to more complicated pieces, functional or decorative.” – Cassie Boogers
Fort Saskatchewan Pottery Guild
Fort Saskatchewan Pottery Guild was founded in 1965 by a small group of pottery enthusiasts. With the help of a grant, they purchased some equipment and relocated to the basement of the old town hall. The number of members quickly grew, and there was soon a waiting list. Volunteers were crucial in the guild’s growth and success. Back then, “Joe-Jobs” were a week-long commitment. Before being stretched out on plastic bats, powdered clay was mixed with water in old-fashioned wringer washers. After the clay had achieved the required consistency, it was wedged and bagged.

“Amazing place to learn pottery! We went to a single class where you throw the clay then they glaze and fire it for you. They show you how it’s done first, then give you hands on training and then let you just go for it! Would highly, highly recommend going here for a date night! Our teacher Ayla was so fun and helpful!” – Josh Zizek

“My sister, niece and I had a lovely time! The owner was super bubbly and friendly, explained everything in great detail and offered wonderful tips. My only complaint would be there aren’t stands for your clay pieces to sit on while you paint, which led to my fingers getting paint on them and I got paint on the table (which easily wipes off). Regardless, the experience was great and I’d definitely recommend going here and creating your masterpiece! Thank you ladies for an awesome bonding time and I cannot wait to see how my sunflower vase turned out :)” – Kayla Justus
