I hope you are all doing well and getting ready for this exciting snow we're going to have!
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and let you all know that for a little while, I will be your contact person for Clay Club. As you read in her email, Amy is taking time to help her husband who is having health issues so I'm going to help out here until she's able to take back over.
If you have any questions about Clay Club, want to host a Clay Club, or have any questions or postings for the blog or social media, let me know.
As far as monthly Clay Club goes, we are filling up fast which is so exciting! If you want to host a Clay Club - either virtual or in person - let me know asap as we are scheduling August and later.
If you want to host but don't have a good venue, Kelsey Schissel with Plays In Mud Pottery has graciously offered her studio/gallery in West Asheville to Clay Clubbers to host at.
Get it on your calendars, our current lineup is:
February: John Britt and Gold Shino (if you have not received John Britt's email with the details let me know and I'll get it out to you)
March: Kelsey Schissel
April: Michael Kline
May: Lynda Gayle Banner
June: Tori Motyl and Wild Clay
July: Rachel Smith and Surface Decoration with Underglaze Transfers
Reminder: Clay Club will meet the second Wednesday of every month at 6pm unless otherwise stated. You can expect an email from me each month with details.
That's all for now, have a great weekend!

Happy New Year, Clubbers! John Britt and I have been talking and here's our thinking for moving forward and getting our meetings going again:
February Clay Club: John will be organizing a participatory Gold Shino firing for February Clay Club. Look for more details about that soon. (Thank you, John!)
For meetings after February, we're reaching out to all of you and asking that you (individually or in small groups) consider volunteering to organize and host a meeting. This could be online like our October meeting or in person, depending on what's going with COVID-19 and host preferences. I know there is a lot of interest in getting our meetings started again; here's your chance to organize and host a meeting on a topic of your choice! Let me know if you're interested in doing this.
I hope everyone's 2022 is starting out well despite Omicron. I look forward to hearing from you!
