Events

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:

To find where we’ll be, conducting an event that might interest you, navigate through the events menu (right column). Choose the Calendar to view everything we’re doing or click through the audience-specific links.

“The Hope Center for Arts & Technology, or HopeCAT, is a replication of Bill Strickland’s Manchester Bidwell Corporation (MBC) in Pittsburgh, an educational model blending the principles of art, music, and environment with career training to produce productive members of society. Replication programs are not intended to just mentor students, but to break cycles of poverty and drive economic growth in the region.  Thus they work with the region’s employers and educators to continue identifying needs to expand programs.”
