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.
