Mugs, Bowls, & More
The Alabama Clay Conference is proud to
give back to the community.
THE (ALWAYS POPULAR) MUG EXCHANGE
Bring a mug you made. Check it in at the Mug Exchange table at the conference. Next, admire all the mugs that other people have brought. They will be placed in individual bags for a blind swap on Saturday night at Brother’s Bar, on the Square in Downtown Jacksonville, around 9PM. Bring your exchange ticket with you for your new mug. After and during the Mug Exchange, socialize with one another while you enjoy refreshments and music. Finally, you leave with a terrific mug made by someone else! Win, win, win!
Bring a Bowl. Donate it by setting it on the Empty Bowl table. Artist and volunteer Teri Hartmann will take all donated bowls to Huntsville for the Empty Bowls Huntsville event in March where it will be sold to benefit First Stop, Inc., a local homeless organization.
THE GEORGINE CLARK SCHOLARSHIP FUND AUCTION
Your donation to this silent auction offers scholarships to needy and grateful students for them to build their skills and careers by attending future Alabama Clay Conferences. Bring a work of ceramic art you made or a creative donation idea such as: a vacation getaway, an adventure, or a meal for two at a restaurant. Be creative for a terrific cause: STUDENTS! They are the future of clay to the ALCC! Keep Georgine’s legacy of education alive.
THE CERF RAFFLE
The ALCC is proud to raise funds for the Craft Emergency Relief Fund. Just think, you could win wonderful tools, supplies, or even a kiln! CERF funds help artists who have suffered studio disasters, offers business plans and education, health and safety information, and insurance along with emergency readiness to all interested artists.
Bring old tools, equipment, magazines, books that you no longer need or have extra of to this table. If you see something you need, you can take it home for free. If you know anyone closing their studio, ask them if they want to donate anything to the ALCC. This is a marvelous opportunity for students and beginning ceramists.
FREE INFORMATION TABLE
The Free Information table is loaded with free catalogs from craft schools, workshops, programs, etc. for you to take home and look through. Maybe you’ll find a workshop or program with the artist/teacher you really want to take a class from.
