Open House: Sunday, October 30 from 12:30pm to 3:30pm
District Clay in transitioning to becoming Washington’s first Clay Center as it expands its space from 2,000 square ft to 6,400 square feet at the Off the Beaten Track Warehouse in Langdon.
One result is the creation of 17 private studio spaces for ceramic and other artists. Sunday, October 30th, from 12:30 – 3:30 pm, DCC will have its first Open House and will have 8 constructed private artist studios for viewing as well as floorplans, Center information and tours of the facility.
The studios range in size from 8’ x 11’ to 12’ x 20’ and include electricity, an overhead light, a door or privacy curtain (depending on the studio) and shelving outside the studio for display of artwork. Studios are $29/square foot including utilities, wi-fi, a kitchen, men’s and women’s bathrooms and easy parking as well as use of all of District Clay’s facilities.
The NEW! District Clay Center will also include a 500 square foot Gallery, room for workshops and receptions, an associate artist program (in addition to our studio artist program), significantly expanded ceramic equipment, a guest resident artist program and a master artist workshop program.
District Clay has also launched a non-profit arm to support its new Community Clay! Program, which will offer free ceramic classes to underserved youth and free teacher training to public and charter school teachers. This arm, called the District Clay Educational Fund, will also support our guest resident artist program and cultural and educational outreach regarding the ceramic arts and crafts.
Regarding future events, on Tuesday, November 1st, the new DCC will launch an Indiegogo Campaign to help fund the new Center. On Saturday evening, November 19th, the DCC will have a Grand Opening Party and an inaugural Gallery Exhibition titled ‘Homegrown Talent.’
