I got back from Clayathon today and I am so tired I can barely see straight. But we had a ball, all 110 or so of us. The Stockton Seaview, where the event is held, is a luxury golf resort with a spa, pool, fitness center, a fireplace in the lobby and a big bowl of apples on the hotel’s front desk. It’s a great place to unwind and have fun.
This years’ Clayathon attracted clayers from as far away as California, Texas, and Canada. Each Clayathon attendee got a 6-foot table as a workspace. We had ovens for baking, buffers for buffing, drills for drilling and electric pasta machines out in the hall. Donna Kato was this years’ guest artist and taught a class before Clayathon started. Sarah Shriver, Claire Maunsell, Lindly Haunani, Melanie West and Jana Roberts Benzon taught pre and post-conference classes, too.
I’ll write more on Clayathon next week, I hope! In the meantime, here are some pictures.
