shop talk sessions
This is our community. Shop Talk Sessions are monthly community gatherings for our current members and newcomers alike. Over a common chosen topic within ceramics, we eat, converse, ask questions, and unapologetically explore the world of clay together. Everyone is welcome to share in our potluck style gatherings, we encourage folks to bring a drink or snack to share. Check out our next round of Shop Talks below.
