NCC will be canceling the first three weeks of Clay Camps, June 8 - 26 as well as the second 5 Centers Camps taking place July 13 - 17. Camps beginning June 29th and after are still slated to run, though our plans will continue to evolve and program adjustments made as updates and new recommendations are made available.
Northern Clay Center’s mission to advance the ceramic arts for artists, learners and the community holds strong even as we practice social distancing and pause from our normal routines. NCC has worked to create and implement a cohesive and thoughtful plan for our programs with the health and well-being of our community as our top priority. We are mindfully and fervently implementing strategies in a proactive and socially-responsible manner to adhere to evolving recommendations from local and national health authorities to curb the transmission and overall impact of COVID-19 within our ceramics community and our greater local communities. Considering these strategies and the anticipation of extended needs for social distancing and safety over the summer months, NCC will be canceling the first three weeks of Clay Camps, June 8 - 26 as well as the second 5 Centers Camps taking place July 13 - 17. Camps beginning June 29th and after are still slated to run, though our plans will continue to evolve and program adjustments made as updates and new recommendations are made available. If you are enrolled in a camp after June 29th, we will continue monitoring the situation and cancel camps one week at a time, at least two weeks in advance of each camp’s start date.
With in-person classes no longer a predictable option for the beginning of summer, NCC will be creating Clay-Along Camp Kits so clay can be a part of your summer in a reimagined and safe way! Our Clay Camp instructors will bring you all the fun of a hands-on Clay Camp week in a convenient, themed kit that will include 12 lbs of low-fire clay for handbuilding, engobes (colored slips) for decoration, instructional videos to follow along while making projects, and the same lessons in paper format (5+ guided projects per kit). Kits will be available for registration June and can be picked up curbside at NCC. Once your camper is finished with their Clay-Along adventure, drop-off their work for complete firings, including glazing, at NCC. Clay-Along Camp kits will cost $60. Stay tuned to our website for details of registration dates and kit themes.
