Potters' Workshop Welcomes New Instructor, Debra Zimmerman
The Catawba Valley Potters' Workshop is pleased to introduce Debra Zimmerman, who will be instructing mosaic and handbuilding classes. Debra comes to the workshop with an array of experience. She has been a stained glass artist since 1996. She has explored various methods including copper foil, kiln forming but her favorite is mosaics. Her creative interest expanded to pottery, providing her an opportunity to create mosaic art with clay. While she does enjoy working on the wheel, her passion is handbuilding pottery, embellishing slab creations with design and detail.
Debra will be introducing a mosaic class, "Beginning Mosaic", held on Thursdays, September 10th through September 24th, from 6pm to 8pm. It is designed to teach students the basics of mosaic design and construction with pottery shards.
She will also be teaching a one day "Whistle Making Workshop," on Saturday, October 3rd from 9am to noon. This workshop will teach students how to use basic clay forming techniques to construct and shape a working whistle. Students will also have the opportunity to embellish and decorate their whistles for a one-of-a-kind instrument.
