Hey Clay!

Unleash your inner potter

Hey Clay! is a national celebration of clay - giving everyone the chance to unleash their inner potter.

Whilst we can’t do things the usual way, with our physical events being cancelled due to COVID-19, we’re still committed to celebrating all things clay. Over the course of the weekend of 15 - 17 May 2020 as part of the Get Creative festival (which runs 9 - 17th May 2020) we’ll be sharing online step-by-step tutorials and events across our channels to encourage you to Get Creative at Home.

Now in its sixth year, Hey Clay! has become hugely popular and much loved among audiences as it gives them the chance to do something they wouldn’t normally do. No clay? There's a way! We'll be bringing you the best recipes for clay alternatives, from marzipan to salt dough, so you can make (or eat) a pot!

If you are a maker or venue who has a free clay related event or project we can share or support online, we’d love to hear from you! To take part in Hey Clay! email heyclay@craftscouncil.org.uk. If you are participating in any Hey Clay! activity online, be sure to tag us and use the hashtags #HeyClay! and #GetCreativeatHome so we can see what you're up to!
