Ways to Participate


Our events are only possible through the generous participation of our Board and Members. Offer your time, ideas, and skills in service of our clay community, while fostering a connection with other members. Email us for more information.

Write for the blog or newsletter

Each member has expertise to share. If you'd like to write an article about techniques, new work, discoveries, a museum visit, philosophy, studio flow, or other clay-related topics, please send us your idea through the Article submission form, and we will consider it for inclusion on the website or newsletter.

Attend a Board meeting

Board meetings are open to all members! Attending is a great way to connect with the WCA and our Board volunteers. Read more about Board meetings and Board members.
