Clay Bash 2014
Saturday, September 13, 2014
Creative Alliance

Baltimore Clayworks is pleased to announce a new twist on our annual gala and art auction. This year’s event, the Clay Bash will take place Saturday, September 13, 2014 at the Creative Alliance in Baltimore, MD. “Wear your dancing shoes and anything you choose” because the Clay Bash will be less formal than prior galas – where guests are encouraged to show up in fun and funky, Charm City chic! The two part event will feature a seated dinner, live and silent auctions and an After-Party where guests will dance the night away. Your ticket price not only provides you access to this re-fabbed (and we mean FAB’ULOUS) event with great food, open bar and ceramic art, but will also have a direct impact on our ability to sustain high quality ceramic instruction both at our studio in Mt. Washington and in underserved communities of Baltimore City, in neighborhoods with little or no access to the art.

Full Gala Experience- $125 early bird/$150 after Aug. 15: includes a seated dinner, open bar, live and silent auction, ceramics demo and a night of dancing. ($1,250 for full table)

Gala After-Party- $35 early bird/$50 after Aug. 15: At 9:00 pm, the doors will open for a musical performance, dancing, open bar and silent auction.

Purchase Tickets:

Full Gala Exp. $125 early/$150
Gala After-Party $35 early/$50
