About Us

Experience is the teacher of all things

– Julius Ceasar

The Viva Clayworks team is a group of talented ‘cerama-siblings’ who have come together to create a phenomenal teaching studio. Our passion is clay and our joy is sharing our passion with you. We have 12 wheels and a ton of space to create in our Edmonton studio. If you want to sink your hands in the clay and learn pottery our studio is your creative home base.

Our Edmonton studio started in 1995 as a small branch of a larger business, Clayworks Studio. Our studio space off Whyte Avenue is a haven for clay creatives who are interested in hand forming, wheel works, and ceramic painting. We also have a retail store full of one-of-a-kind works of art lovingly made by our current and former students.

Our Salmon Arm studio is an artists oasis. Still in the beginning stages, the Salmon Arm location hosts classes and workshops as well as the Viva Clayworks annual retreat. If you’re driving through the area please make a point to stop by for a visit.

What the next 20 years will bring? Hopefully more of the joy, laughter and excellent students that the past 20 years has given us
