Michigan Mud 2013
Delta College, University Center, Mi
Every two years ceramic artists, students, educators and enthusiasts gather from across the state and beyond the state borders to enjoy two days of lectures, demonstrations, panel discussions and exhibitions offered by the Michigan Ceramic Art Association. This year's conference will be hosted by Delta College, located just off I-75 between the Tri-Cities of Bay City, Saginaw and Midland.
We have a dynamic and diverse group of talented ceramic artists who are very passionate about clay and will be showcasing their knowledge and skills for everyone on the 11th - 12th of October, 2013. We are excited and honored to have Josh DeWeese as our Keynote Speaker and Demonstrator for this year's conference.
