Creston-Yaltk cultural progress Potters conduct classes NATAL (HNS) - The East K o o tenay Recreation Association has received a grant under the Local Initiatives Program to conduct an intensive crafts instruction program throughout the East Kootenay. Although approval was given just recently, two potters have begun conducting- classes in pottery in the Creston-Yahk area. Project co-ordinator John Thompson is working with instructors and local recreation commissions scheduling workshops, clinics, classes and special events for the coming four months. Other craftsmen will teach fabrics (weaving, batik, mac-rame, grapliics), tie-dyeing and leather work. Their schedule will allow each community to have each of the craftsmen for a period of several weeks. In this way, people will have opportunity to learn a number of craft skills. Association vice - president G. R. McClenaghan said that because indigenous crafts men arc not readily available, most communities in the East Kootenay find it almost impossible to offer cultural programs to their citizens. "Purpose of this project," he added, "is two-fold, to upgrade and train and enrich people interested in and capable of becoming instructors in a particular craft, and to offer a vocational skills to others interested." Mr. McClenaghan said that a high interest has been shown from groups such as senior citizens, h a n d i capped societies, housewives and teachers. The project must be concluded by May 31. Mr. McClenaghan said the association is considering a one-week residential course in late May to allow potential leaders to spend additional time to perfect their skills and teaching techniques. Cost to participants is nominal and covers some supplies and equipment rental. According to association president Mrs. Esther Riffel, the project could include short-term crafts workshops conducted by craftsmen who may be available only on a weekend or evening basis, Anyone with the skills and time who wishes to become associated with the project should contact the recreation office in either Fernie, Cranbrook or Creston.
