We love events!
We see events as places we go to meet you, talk and share, instruct and inspire. At trade shows we show up with literature, product samples and dazzling displays. We bring supplies to teach classes or to do simple “make n’ takes” at our booth. We show up with artists, teachers and marketers who are well versed in product usage. We can answer technical questions about how products are supposed to work. And we love to share design and decorating ideas, discussing with you various applications techniques and the fired effects they create.
Perhaps our favorite type of event is the one where we get to explore product usage with you. Hands-on. We’ll talk a little - but you’ll feel, apply and directly experience what it’s like to use Mayco products. We generally develop classes and workshops for the following audiences:
- Art Educators: For teachers primarily teaching art to elementary and secondary school students.
- PYOP (Paint Your Own Pottery studios): For owners and employees of ceramic studio businesses
- Consumers & Hobbyists: For anyone interesting in design and decorating on low fire (cone 06) ceramics.
- Potters & Clay Artists: For anyone interested in design and decorating on mid-range and higher fire ceramics (cone 6 and up)
- Glass: For anyone interested in warm glass art: fusing, slumping and casting

We have a few structured workshops - we call them "Camps" - that we create and market annually.

Join us for a two-day educational event intended for PYOP staff. We update studios on new product usage, share design and application techniques and discuss best practices for a retail studio.
Pottery Camp is intended for Paint-Your-Own Pottery owners, managers, and key staff. It is a two-day session filled with techniques, marketing, tips, tricks, and product knowledge. As the tagline states – Imagination, Inspiration, Education.
IMAGINATION. You will glaze several projects and from there take portions of the techniques, colors, ideas and make them your own. Most projects are ready for a workshop or class. But you can put your own spin on the project since you know your customers.
INSPIRATION. One of the benefits of attending Pottery Camp is networking with your peers. Sometimes the most random idea pops up and changes your world. The Mayco instructors Crista Toler, Bre Kathman, and Teddy Wright work to inspire you with additional uses for the projects and creative displays. We will feed your imagination.
EDUCATION. Pottery Camp is filled with product knowledge - how the glazes work, what combines well and what doesn't work. You will be able to go back to your studio and help your customers create awesome projects and direct them in a successful manner. It is great to have a pretty project, but you need to know how to make any adjustments needed for your studio. Pottery Camp covers marketing, displays, samples that sell, product knowledge and so much more!
