Clay Play Day

Guild member Maisha Sullivan’s  many community projects have sent her around the world.   So how does she find the time to found and run a  multimedia crafting group?  It must be a labor of love because it lets her combine her passion for community activism with her other passion, art.

Maisha  organizes a crafting workshop every four months as therapy for a group of women  who are social activists in Philadelphia.  The next one,  which will be held on September 14,   is a Clay Play Day.  These women, who  deal with some tough social issues,  enjoy a place where they can can kick back, relax, learn about a new craft and enjoy a pot luck lunch.

Each workshop has a minimum of thirty women  and girls participating and a minimum of four different craft projects with preference given to projects made from recycled materials. Participants demonstrate for one another.

Tomorrow, Ellen Marshall and I will crank up our pasta machines and head to West Philly to demonstrate polymer clay techniques for the group.
