THE WOODSHOP

The Centre operates a fully equipped shop, which includes workbenches, table saw, jointers, shapers, bandsaw, drill press, belt sander, drum sander, and a selection of hand tools.  However, we do not have any on-site supervision, and restrict access to members who have the skills and experience to work safely in this high risk environment, while working alone. 

Members are provided with a one-on-one orientation and have access to the shop on a 24/7 basis.

Our Membership Prices:

  • One Month: $30

*Please note, these prices do not include your annual Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre membership of $25 per year, or the key deposit of $20.

Joining If you Don’t Have Experience

We only offer pottery guild memberships to those that have experience as there are quite a few elements of the pottery process that need to be understood in order to keep our kilns and equipment in proper running order. 

Take A Class with us by Joining Our Waitlist

Join our waitlist for our 6 week intensive beginners pottery workshop where you will gain all the skills to get started. Currently the waitlist for this introductory course is over 200 people long so classes are offered first come first serve based on our waiting list. This comprehensive class is almost always running here at the centre however due to large numbers of interest it might be several months before we send you an invitation to partake.

THE COMMUNITY GARDENS

In partnership with the Revelstoke Local Food Initiative

The community garden at the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre was started in 2015 and is now run by our volunteers and the Revelstoke Local Food Initiative. There is a ton of potential in this huge space that flows in with our Xeriscape garden.

Members of this community garden enjoy plots of herbs, vegetables, flowers and a mini fruit orchard, with all excess donated to the Revelstoke Food Bank.

For more information on how to join these gardens, please contact: rvacgarden@revelstokelocalfood.com
