Join us as we gather to share our experiences and collage our way to healing.  This is a FREE event.

  Clay on Main will host an Open Studio – with materials to create a collage. No art experience is necessary. Let the healing power of the images help you see your path forward.

Give Thanks in November!

The season for thanks is upon us and as the last leaves fall to the ground, we head inside our warm homes to spend darkened hours with family and friends.

This time of year is a great time to begin focusing on the approaching holiday season.  Clay on Main keeps it’s doors open and it’s studio warm and bright while offering holiday workshops, handmade gifts, and informative lectures.  Check out what’s coming up in November and December at the Half Moon Cafe HERE, and elsewhere in the studio HERE.

Pick up something unique for special loved ones in your life at our Holiday Boutique, ongoing through December, or give the gift of knowledge by signing someone up for one of our wonderful workshops, happening now through Spring 2017.

Most of all, give THANKS, today, tomorrow, and everyday.  Clay on Main thanks all those who help us throughout the year.

Volunteers Wanted! We need YOU!

Volunteers are needed at Clay on Main and various other locations for the following events:

Half Moon hospitality crew:  Our Half Moon Cafe events need a hospitality host the night of each show during the Fall season.

A list of dates for each show, as well as performing act can be found here.  To understand what that may require, take a look at our quick checklist for volunteers: Half Moon Hospitality List.

 

We also need volunteers for a community outreach project at the Keim Homestead Music Fest on OCTOBER 1st.  The activities are from 11 to 5pm, and we will need help through out the day.  We will set up our usual make and take it activity, and everything will be explained, so no experience is necessary.

Clay on Main was happy to be represented at the Maidencreek Old-Time Music Festival on July 10th, 2016.  It was our second year attending the event, with fearless leader Dolores Kirschner manning a stand and demonstrating ceramics to passersby.  This event is held every year at Maier’s Grove in Blandon, PA.  Clay on Main adds a unique element to the music themed festival, and we were just so glad to participate!

John Paul II Center gets excited about the new mural at Clay on Main

As many CoM supporters know, we see students from the John Paul II Center from time to time in the studio as they join Dolores and other studio volunteers to explore their creativity through clay.  We’ve been fortunate to organize a mural project with the JPII Center and Nancy Yeager, poet laureate, who wrote a poem inspired by statements from the students.  The mural itself is slated to be completed in the Fall of 2016.

The Center updated their students, faculty, and family members to the potential design of the mural as well.  Check out what they have to say about the project here!

Also, check back often as we update the timeline and the grand unveiling of this great project involving Clay on Main, poet laureate Nancy Yeager, and the John Paul II Center.
