Speckled Row was founded in 2021 by Carla O'Bee, an artist and instructor with a love for clay, paint, teaching and community.
This beautiful land on which we create, gather, work, play and live, is the ancestral, traditional and unceded territory of the Syilx (Okanagan) peoples, who have been here for thousands of years.
Our mission is to foster creativity, collaboration and community through studio memberships and a variety of in studio art classes and workshops tailored towards adults, teens and children. Speckled Row is a working studio and is the home of over 15 creatives working across the mediums of paint, printmaking and ceramics.
Our studio is fully equipped with 7 pottery wheels, clay extruder, slab roller, two kilns, a large working table, a variety of hand tools, individual work spaces and bright and airy creative energy.
