Join us for the 15th Anniversary of Pottery Camp in San Antonio, Texas on February 27-28, 2016!

Just $15 per person for two days of Mayco’s award-winning education. There’s only ONE Pottery Camp in 2016 and you’re invited! We’re going all out for our 15th Anniversary celebration! Two days chock full of techniques in surface decoration, glass, mixed media, marketing, business tips and more! Sign up for Mayco’s emails to ensure you receive all the details for the biggest Mayco event of the year!

Pottery Camp has been designed for PYOP owners, key staff and managers. To make sure our event is focused on the needs of PYOP studios we will implementing new policies in 2015.  We feel it is important for retail studios to be able to discuss pricing, marketing and costs without being concerned about divulging trade information.

So - you still have the convenience of registering online. Your registration will be queued for approval by a Mayco Team member; once we validate that your business meets our criteria for a PYOP studio your registration will be processed.*  Also: we are limiting attendance to two (2) staff members from an individual studio. This allows us to share the Mayco love and education with more of you!

  • A PYOP Studio Owner, manager, key staff or considering opening a studio.
  • Over the age of 16
  • Maximum two attendees per studio
  • Great attitude, willing to learn and ready to have fun.
