Pottery Wheels Donated to College

WNC’s art classes are grateful for the donation of three new Brent Model B Pottery Wheels.

“We have enjoyed many classes at WNC, Fallon — classes we have taken for credit or for audit, as well as Community Education courses,” read a statement from anonymous donors. “Relocating after retirement we looked for a location that had a community college that would provide us continuing opportunities to learn and grow. We were very happy to select Fallon and turned to WNC for the classes it offered. We have especially enjoyed art classes at the college and are aware of the need for new pottery wheels. With this donation we would like to ensure that others in the Fallon area have access to quality equipment to match the quality of instruction.”
