Pottery event to benefit Yorkton Air Cadets

The Royal Canadian Air Cadets 17 Squadron in Yorkton benefited from a well-deserved fundraiser.

On Saturday, the ‘Love In Your Heart’ pottery tin cup event was a huge success. Artisan Marea Olafson of Freba Pottery in Dafoe showed a class of excited pottery enthusiasts how to make a clay cup.

All in all, eleven mugs were crafted by hand under the Olafson’s expert tutelage.

The event, a fundraiser for the Cadets, is part of an ongoing series of artisan events intended to provide opportunities for people wanting to learn different techniques and mediums, all the while raising funds for a good cause.

If you missed this event, though, don’t worry: you still have time!
