District Clay will hold its annual Spring Pottery Sale on Saturday, May 7th from 11 am to 5 pm at its studios at the Off the Beaten Track Warehouse.  The Spring Pottery Sale is being held as part of a Spring Open Studio Day at the Warehouse.

The first 100 attendees will receive a free District Clay cup made by Resident Artists.

The Spring Pottery Sale will feature over 300 pieces of work from 15 of District Clay’s resident artists, teachers and students.  Tours of the studio and 10% off coupons for District Clay classes will also be featured.  To see examples of students work, go to https://www.districtclay.com or their instagram account at instagram.com/districtclay.

District Clay—whose motto is “Seize the Clay!”—opened in February 2015 in area of Northeast Washington, DC that had no access to ceramic facilities.  Since that time, their associates have produced over 10,000 pots with more than 550 children and adults taking classes at the studio.  In addition, all District Clay’s clay is recycled:  the studio has recycled over 18,000 lbs of clay since it opened.

The studio features gas and electric kilns, 14 Shimpo whisper wheels, a glaze spray booth, a slab roller, a ceramic lending library, a full component of ceramic tools, a glaze tile board, a Great Pots Exhibition Area and a 55-inch TV for viewing instructional videos.

District Clay is the only teaching studio in the area that features a program for advanced students to become resident artists with 24-hour access to the studio.  District Clay also offers its students the most liberal Open Studio program of any area ceramic studio by allowing its students to sit on other classes as well as the Sunday Free Studio at no charge.

District Clay is located near Brookland at the Off the Beaten Trace Warehouse, which includes over a dozen artist and artisan studios as well as a 5,000 square foot vintage furniture showroom.

District Clay is located at 2414 Douglas St. NE. For more information visit www.districtclay.com.
