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 17 - 19 May 2019 as part of the Get Creative festival (which runs from 11-19 May 2019).
If you are a maker or venue who would like to hold a Hey Clay! event we'd love to hear from you! You can run anything from a half-day session to a number of workshops over all three days.
For more information read the venue guidelines pack.
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 March 2019.
- We will be sending you eye-catching flyers and social media assets for you to use. These will be sent to venues in early April 2019.
- 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.
