Potters' Workshop News and Events
The Potters' Workshop has several events planned for 2013:
Sat., Feb. 23 – 10am to 2pm
The Potters' Workshop will host an open house on Sat., Feb. 23, from 10 am to 2 pm. The public is invited to view the unique facility and meet with staff and students.
The open house will highlight students' work, and allow prospective students the opportunity to meet with staff members. Workshop director Kim Ellington shares, "Guests will have the opportunity to see the facility and learn about the different types of pottery classes offered."
The Potters' Workshop open house marks the end of "National Entrepreneurship Week," and is being held in conjunction with the Catawba Valley Community College's Job Creation Center.
The Workshop seeks to promote the understanding, appreciation and continuation of Catawba Valley pottery. The goal is to provide contemporary instruction using local, historical methods and materials to make pottery. Student Rebecca Carl comments on her experience "I really wanted to learn pottery; this class is very hands-on – from the first day it's about getting in there and getting your hands dirty. It's exciting to watch your hands raise your first shape up."
