As one of the organizers of Clay Week, I have been working on the content of this years celebration for months. This year our theme is RESOURCES.

TUESDAY- Grants, Scholarships, Fellowships, and Awards

THURSDAY- Colleges, Internship, Assistantship, Apprenticeships
FRIDAY-SUNDAY- Open Studios, Gallery & Museum Events, Community Activities
This hands on workshop will be focusing on the design details that go into making our daily use pots-- cups, mugs, bowls, and pouring pots. We will be working with stoneware and while a large portion of work will be on the wheel, we will be incorporating handbuilding too. Among other things, we will be covering throwing, trimming, rim alterations, spouts, handles, and how process marks can be design elements themselves. Open to all skill levels.
Along with the exhibition and sale of ceramic wares, there are programs that include opportunities to see the Center’s ceramics studio, and watching various demonstrations.
Exhibiting artists include: Lisa Naples, Ronan Kyle Peterson, Kyla Toomey, Brenda Quinn, Tom O’Malley, Jen Gandee, Brooke Millecchia, Todd Wahlstrom, Autumn Cipala, Michael McCarthy, Ingrid Bathe, Noel Bailey, Martha Grover, Tyler Gulden, Lindsay Oesterritter, Jerilyn Virden, Sarah Heimann, Stuart Gair, Steve Theberge, and Ben Krupka
