Pottery Camp has been designed for PYOP owners, key staff and managers. To make sure our event is focused on the needs of PYOP studios we will implementing new policies in 2015.  We feel it is important for retail studios to be able to discuss pricing, marketing and costs without being concerned about divulging trade information.

Your registration will be queued for approval by a Mayco Team member; once we validate that your business meets our criteria for a PYOP studio your registration will be processed.*  Also: we are limiting attendance to two (2) staff members from an individual studio. This allows us to share the Mayco love and education with more of you!

  • A PYOP Studio Owner, manager, key staff or considering opening a studio.
  • Over the age of 16
  • Maximum two attendees per studio
