The Catawba Valley Community College’s Potters’ Workshop is pleased to announce a variety of classes for our Spring Session beginning in March. Whether you have never touched a ball of clay, or have knowledge turning a pot, the Potters’ Workshop has a class for every skill and interest level.
The workshop has added an exciting new class, Beginning Pottery. Instructed by Evelyn Arnold, this class allows for students with no previous experience with clay to learn hand building and wheel thrown pottery techniques and also gives students with previous experience the opportunity to combine both hand building and wheel throwing skills. The class meets on Thurs., March 20 to May 15, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Pottery I, instructed by Preston Tolbert, a full time potter from Old Fort, NC, will be held on Thurs., March 27 – May 22 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Hand Building I, instructed by potter Shelly Johnston, will be held on Wed., March 19 – May 14 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Pottery Basics, instructed by Evelyn Arnold, will be held on Tues., March 18 – May 13 from 6 to 9 p.m. These classes are taught in a workshop format where students will create basic to complex forms, learn to apply glaze and the proper procedure for loading and firing an electric kiln.
