JANUARY 2021 NEWSLETTER


Dear ClayHouston members,

Hello and Happy New Year! I hope you had a restful holiday and are beginning 2021 with renewed energy.

I want to take a moment to thank you for continuing to be a part of ClayHouston. 2020 was not the year we expected and it definitely meant we had to do things differently. 2021 will undoubtably start off in a similar fashion but I hope that we will get back to more in-person programming this year. I miss seeing you all!

Thank you for supporting our Bayou City Clay Crawl in December. As you know, we converted the event to an all-virtual format for the sake of safety. I’m so grateful for all the hard work that went into the event - everyone really put their heart into making it the best it could be given the circumstances. We’re still tallying the total sales and donations but will give you an update soon!

I also want to send out a thank you to Debra Chronister for guiding us in the Yoga for Artists event last month. It was a welcome respite of quiet and healing and I look forward to more events like it this year!

The ClayHouston board is excited to get to work planning new events and creative opportunities and I can’t wait to share them with you.

I’m also looking forward to our monthly ClayTalks Event on Thursday, January 21st from 6-7pm. Hope to see you there! In the meantime, take care, stay safe and well and I hope to see you all soon.

Jessica Phillips
