Who does the work of presenting the Celebration of Clay? 
Celebration of Clay Committee and...YOU!
 

Sign-up for volunteer tasks here.

Specific details of the tasks may change because of health regulations due to the pandemic. 

It takes the combined effort of a lot of people to present the annual Celebration of Clay.   We make it easy 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 more than one task.

We can't put on the annual Celebration of Clay exhibition without a lot of effort on the part of our members.  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", number 15, in this registration.    

Click on "Register" to Review all Tasks and To Sign Up To Help. Register button is on left side of this page.

It is important that you review all the jobs and the details of what is involved, the perform date, and the location and conditions.  Click "register" button at left of page, enter your email address, click "next", and scroll down on the list to see all the details.  

To sign up for a task, select the task, and follow the prompts.  

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.  Or, sign up for task #00 and we'll find a job that we didn't anticipate for you to help with.

Thank you so much for helping put on this show!
