Taking place every summer in Silver City, New Mexico, the CLAY Festival gathers together artists, educators, entrepreneurs, families, youth, adventurers, and life-long learners to explore clay in its many forms as well as its impact on our history, present, and future.
Whether you're a seasoned clay artist or want to get your hands dirty for the first time, you'll find your niche at the CLAY Festival. Enjoy a variety of workshops, demonstrations, lectures on everything from using clay in construction to contemporary ceramics; take home a work of art, a book or two from the CLAY Market. CLAY also offers tours of a handmade tile factory and the Gila Cliff Dwellings, a Gala reception, live music, juried exhibitions, and more.
