The e-Clay Learning and Teaching Research Project


This project was precipitated by the closure of community clay studios during the pandemic and funded by the Canada Council for the Arts.

The project explored new ways to work virtually and create interactive experiences with clay.  Through our research, which involved input from over 100 artists, teachers and students, the project findings offer recommendations for online learning and teaching that also meet the need for community connections through clay.

When we presented the findings, there was enormous support for the guilds to move forward with the next phase of the project to develop online programs that support interactivity. The e-Clay committee will continue to work collaboratively with the clay community across the province, and hopefully Canada, to accomplish this goal.
