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!

Thanks to everyone who made it out to Clay on Main’s annual Ice Cream Social and Open House event. Whether you were a participant or a volunteer, we couldn’t have done it without you! It was a successful day full of demos, projects, crafts, and of course, ICE CREAM!

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.
