National Clay Week

Here's a breakdown:

National Clay Week

National Clay Week is about connecting and getting people involved in the experience of clay.

Not everyone has access to galleries, workshops, or a clay community, but most have access to the Internet. This is the core concept behind National Clay Week. Our goal is to unite the clay communities; potters, factories, engineers... everyone!

We are going to accomplish this by hosting 2-3 events per day that will happen digitally and physically. Events will take place at locations all over the world while others are broadcast to those who can't attend.  

Together we will make National Clay Week an event for everyone!

There are many ways to Get Involved!
