Every year our OPA potters are afforded these ceramic workshops to create ceramic wares to donate to the OPA Showcase Installation booth to be sold to our constituents to raise money for our OPA “Clay In Education” program to help pay for our potters who teach ceramics in our schools AND for giving out Student Scholarships in Oregon and Washington.
