get involved – National Clay Week Open Studios

Join us for a national ceramic outreach project!

NCW Open Studios is inspired by a similar event started by the Australian Ceramics Association. It has been very successful across the continent, continuing to grow each year. The ACOS (Australian Ceramics Open Studios) provides the umbrella of a national event for studios, reaching out to local and national politicians to make them aware of who their ceramic artists are, and inviting their politicians, their neighbors, and their communities, into their studios to learn more, view demonstrations, and perhaps take home a handmade item. ACOS provides letter and press release templates and a logo each year, a central website and most powerfully a common date, creating unity among the ceramic community.

National Clay Week Open Studios seeks to echo this model. You can sign up here on the NCW website, and we will send you a packet containing sample press releases, letters to send to local politicians, local schools, chambers of commerce. You can personalize these letters to your own open studio event and get your community involved. NCW encourages you to host any clay-related event you’d like on the second weekend in October to get people excited about clay. Let’s make this accessible, a national event to open our studios, whether in your home or in an art center, and invite those in who may not otherwise realize the intrinsic value of ceramics. 

For more on NCW Open Studios, check out the most recent episode of Ben Carter’s Tales of a Red Clay Rambler podcast #181 with Vicki Grima of ACOS and Stephen Creech of NCW
