Hey Clay! 2018: Call for Applications

Hey Clay! is a national celebration of clay - giving everyone the chance to unleash their inner potter. This is done by venues offering free participation events with clay over the course of the weekend of 23-25 March 2018 as part of the Get Creative festival (which runs from 17-25 March 2018).

If you are a maker or venue who would like to hold a Hey Clay! event – you can run anything from a half-day session to a number of workshops over all three days.

For more information read the venue guidance form.

In return for a free Hey Clay! workshop the Crafts Council and Get Creative will offer:

  • Each Hey Clay! venue will have its own listing on the Crafts Council website and the Get Creative website. Event listings will be searchable by region. We would like to get all these listings live by the end of February 2018.
  • We will be updating the eye-catching flyers and social media assets from last year for you to use. We will be sending these to venues in January 2018.
  • We will be creating a communications campaign to push the word out far and wide and will send all venues a template press release and some communications guidelines so that you can promote your event locally. 

How to Apply

To apply please fill out this listing form and send it to heyclay@craftscouncil.org.uk by 16 March 2018.

The earlier you get your application in, the quicker we'll be able to put it up and the more exposure you will get!
