You are invited to an Open House by the organizers of Pottery 24. This is a 24 hour marathon fundraiser of pottery making that kicks off this weekend. The event is being organized by JustPotters which is part of JustWorks, a Vancouver based non-profit organization that operates three social enterprises – Just Potters, JustCatering and JustRenos. JustPotters’ employees create and sell handmade pottery and crafts which help support their mandate. JustPotters is a pottery studio that was started in East Vancouver in 2006 and is part of a growing movement towards responsible consumption.   JustPotters is  proud to be a part of that movement.  They employ people who face barriers to work including addiction, physical limitations, or mental health challenges.

The public is invited to come to their Open House on Saturday, June 15th between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and tour the pottery studio which is located at 1803 East 1st Avenue.  If you wish to purchase their pottery to help support their mandate, you can do so at the Open House or at their booth on Commercial Drive during Car Free Day on Sunday, June 16th. They will be located by the corner of Commercial and 1st Avenue.   You can also purchase items from their online Catalog.
