The Nevada Clay Guild encourages its members to challenge themselves to learn new skills and find new inspiration and motivation by enriching their ceramic skills. What better why than a workshop?

Throughout the year, the Nevada Clay Guild  offers its members a variety of learning of experiences. One of the best ways to achieve a new set of skills, learning new techniques, or get extra inspiration is through a workshop - an extended learning experience with a professional or emerging artist from the community or around the country.

We have some great workshops planned for the 2019 year!
