CLAY IN COMMON

A Project Guide for Schools, Museums, Galleries, Libraries, and Artists and Clay Activists Everywhere

As clay and ceramic courses decline in schools, craft and hand skills risk being lost. Clay in Common makes the case for the vital role of clay – and working with clay – in schools and wider society. Illustrated with detailed project examples, the book is a hands-on project guide for teachers; facilitators in museums, galleries, libraries and civic spaces; festival organisers; community activists; artists and students; and policy-makers.

The book calls on Clayground’s experience and creative ventures to show how to:

  • Work with schools and the public
  • Devise, develop, promote and make projects happen
  • Advocate for hand skills in formal education
  • Build partnerships and fundraise for work in communities
  • Learn as projects evolve.
