Who does the work of presenting the Celebration of Clay?  You do!  

It takes the combined effort of a lot of people to present the annual Celebration of Clay.  We have identified 24 jobs with 60 people doing those jobs.  Some people need to do more than one job. This year we make it easier for you to decide how you can help and sign up.  You select one or more tasks that you want to perform by "registering" for a job here on this event.  Just choose a "new registration" to sign up for an additional task.

We can't put on the annual Celebration of Clay exhibition without a lot of effort on the part of our members.  

You should plan to sign up for two tasks if you can. There are tasks that are widely varied in the times they are to be performed, the skills required, and the location.  Several can be done at home.  Several are contiguous on the same day and place, making it easy to sign up for two tasks or flexible if your time is limited.  

If you absolutely cannot perform any of the tasks, but still want to participate in the show, would you be willing to contribute to the expenses of the show?  You can do that here...select the final "task" in this registration.    

See All Task Details

It is important that you review this page on the Celebration of Clay website to see all the jobs and the details of what is involved, the perform date, and the location and conditions.   

To sign up for the first task, select register and follow the prompts.  Then, sign up for another task by registering a second time for this same event.

Signing up for each task is limited to the number of people needed for that task.  If there is a task you really want to do, but it is already fully taken, you can sign up for the waitlist on that task.  If someone can't do their job, we will ask you to step in.  

If you have any questions, call
