The Central Cariboo Arts Centre is a busy place on Saturday mornings. Recently there was a tapestry weaving workshop taking place with instructor Marg Evans, potters working and learning new techniques from each other, and an artist’s group participating in a framing workshop. Here Cariboo Potters Guild member Joan Beck describes how to make wheel-thrown plates to learners Kim Kaytor and Tyanna Dixon, before demonstrating the art. The potters are among local groups to receive grants under the new Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Function of the Cariboo Regional District. For more on those grants and what they are for turn to page A22.
