Supporting scholarships for Field Trips & Classes @ Queen City Clay

Part of our mission here at Queen City Clay is to “make the creative process accessible to all”.  As operating costs rise and prices go up, it is increasingly difficult for a for-profit business like us to provide affordable options to the greater community.  In an effort to align with our mission and goal to make a clay experience available to anyone who wants to try, our studio is introducing the QCC Ambassadors Membership.


All profits from the QCC Ambassadors Membership will go directly towards our new scholarship program.  Along with other revenue streams we are implementing, this program will help fund classes, field trips, and other clay experiences for those who might not otherwise be able to participate in programming at our studio.  

   This new membership level would give former members and supporters a way to continue to be involved in the studio, our mission, and your community by giving the gift of an educational clay experience through a monthly membership fee of your choice.  

Benefits and Membership Levels
