Clay Fab Lab 2017 – Touch Meets Technology

Clay Fab Lab returns to the NCECA Conference for its second year! With the support of 92Y Virtual Clay, Skutt Kilns, Anne W. Bracker, West Virginia University and presenting artists, Clay Fab Lab provides a place where clay, touch and technology meet.

Emergence of new technologies and their application to ceramic art and learning represent exciting possibilities that will influence the field’s continued evolution in the 21st century. Many of these technologies are becoming more accessible and some are even DIY …

Visit Clay Fab Lab to explore an innovation space where artists, learners and teachers will share ideas and methods, while discussing challenges and opportunities of creating with clay in new ways.

2017 Clay Fab Lab programming has been developed in consultation with Shoji Satake and Kelly O’Brient of West Virginia University. Touch meets technology in rooms A105/106 (Level 1) of the Oregon Convention Center in Portland on Thursday, March 23 and Friday, March 24, 2017.
