How to Enjoy the Gala
The Clayathon Opening Reception Gala has always been a wonderful event to kick off our creative weekend. In previous years, we’ve donned our wearable art, met in the big dining room, and enjoyed some food and drinks together. We hope this year that you will pour yourself a glass of wine or coffee at home, put on your loveliest polymer pieces, and join us in front of your computer.
In an effort to recreate the table-hopping nature of previous Galas, we will be using Zoom breakout rooms. Think of the main Zoom room as the Gala dining room, and each breakout room is a table at the Gala. We’ll spend 15 minutes at a time in randomized breakout rooms, getting to know some of our fellow Clayathon attendees before reconvening once more in the main Zoom room.
After Gala Party
After the gala officially ends, feel free to meet up with friends old and new in one of our color-named breakout rooms. Here’s a list:
- Burnt Umber
- Cadmium Red
- Cadmium Yellow
- Cobalt Blue
- Fluorescent Pink
- Indigo Blue
- Metallic Silver
- Metallic Gold
- Pearl Green
- Powder Blue
- Raw Sienna
- Ultramarine Blue
Zoom is available for computers, tablets, and phones, but for this event, where it is important to be able to see our fellow participants, we highly recommend using a computer. We also hope that you will keep your camera on. We want to see your lovely face!
