Save the North Vancouver Delbrook Pottery Studio
Delbrook Pottery Studio has been operating in the North Shore for over 30years. Over this time it has provided the much needed space for North Vancouverites to create and express themselves using clay in a community focused and inexpensive way.
The studio offers drop-in and structured classes every day of the week, including studio memberships. Programs run for families, parent and child (3-5yrs), kids (6-12yrs), adults and seniors.
Within the next few years plans are underway to create a new Recreation Centre to consolidate William Griffin and Delbrook Rec Centers. At the moment there is great concern that the new building plans do not include space for a pottery studio.
When Delbrook Rec Centre is demolished, we will lose one of only two pottery studios run by the North Vancouver Rec Commission. Parkgate studio will be unable to accommodate the resulting volume and demand once this occurs.
At a time when the Government has recognized that Art is as important as fitness to the community by implementing a tax credit for children’s art programs, should we not in North Vancouver also recognize this, and preserve and expand already run clay programs for generations to come?
We, the undersigned, call on the North Vancouver Recreation Commission to commit to retaining the Delbrook pottery studio in the new Griffin/Delbrook Recreation Centre.
