Salmon Arm

Nestled among the rolling hills surrounding the Shuswap lake, the Salmon Arm branch of Viva Studios seeks to be a pottery haven for students of all skill levels and ages. With over 35 years of ceramic experience between instructors, Jeremy Pawlowicz and Duncan Tweed, we can confidently help you tackle any project from your first hand-built mug to setting up your own personal studio. Our primary course offering is a six week wheel throwing class for adults though we also offer one night hand-building workshops, youth classes, and specialty firings.

Salmon Arm Studio

The Salmon Arm studio started as a dream, sketched out in an afternoon and grown over the past few years. It is the place to indulge in a little clay play with amazingly well versed instructors.

Salmon Arm is a place to grow, learn, have fun and be a part of the community. This studio is the first step in creating a larger art residency program to add many forms of art instruction to the Shuswap area.
