Okanagan potters once again have their hands on the wheel for  their annual Christmas show.

The time has come to find incredible gifts at the annual event showcasing some of the Okanagan’s best potters and artisans, including  Vernon’s Laurel Fredin, Grindrod’s Stephen Plant and Rebecca and Penny Shepherd of Salmon Arm.

“The Okanagan Potters Association has been bringing quality functional and decorative work to the public for over 48 years,” said member potter Elaine Hughes-Games. “We are happy to answer all your questions about our creative process.”

The show takes place Nov. 14 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days at Okanagan Mission Community Hall, 4409 Lakeshore Rd., Kelowna (at Dehart Road). Admission and parking are free.
