Clay Challenge

The Clay Challenge is an opportunity for members to explore new ideas. We assign a theme and challenge members to create something. It is not a competition, but an excuse to make something new and show it at the “reveal” meeting. These challenges are intended to be fun, spark your imagination, generate conversation and encourage you to investigate new techniques. If you have already explored the topic, we’d love to see your best work! Check the newsletter and MemberConnect for more information.
