Summer 2020 looked a little different from years past, but we still had a blast bringing clay to our Philadelphia community! We did virtual workshops and residencies, held socially distant in-person programming, developed DIY crafting kits for older adult centers, and more! We want to sincerely thank our Claymobile
partners who ventured into the unknown territory of virtual summer camps with us. We learned so much and are ready to take on the 2020 school year!
New this year, Claymobile is offering workshops & residencies with air dry clay kits, virtual crafting workshops and residencies, as well as coil bowl and name plate workshops with kits in addition to our typical programs. Our new program offerings are outlined on the Virtual Claymobile page
of our website and are briefly described below.
- Workshops/Residencies with Air Dry Clay Kits - Workshop or residency on Zoom with air dry clay kits. Kits use a combination of air dry clay and model magic and include basic sculpting tools, paint pots, and brushes for decorating.
- Virtual Crafting Workshops/Residencies - Virtual crafting sessions held on Zoom utilizing materials participants likely have access to at home. These are typically held in a webinar format and can accommodate up to 100 participants.
- Coil Bowl or Name Plate Workshops with Kits - In these workshops, a teaching artist will lead participants step-by-step through creating a coil bowl or name plate using traditional clay materials. Projects will be collected after the workshop for glazing and firing in our kilns.
If none of these option seem like the right fit, please contact us about creating customized programming. In-person programming is also available in some settings. We look forward to seeing you soon!
