It was a great opportunity and for us to be at the 2010 California Gift show representing CLAYCRAFT by DECO. All who stopped by our booth got a chance to see and try their hand at working with the clay. We always believe that hands on Demos or Make & Takes are the best way to showcase this product. I’m not sure of the exact number we taught, but within 4 days of make & takes, it was a lot. It was exciting to see the reaction of students when they turned a piece of clay into beautiful flowers. When we arrived on the first day of the show, we were so shocked to see a huge sign featuring our booth and products at the main entrance. We are very thankful to the organizers of the LA Gift Show for all their assistance and helping us to set up the booth in the central row!
During the show, we explained to participants that all the products they see are hand made of CLAYCRAFT by DECO soft clay. Those who were seeing this craft for the first time found it so hard to believe that this could all be created from clay with so limited tools. We also were able to let them know that there are instructors near who offer classes in this craft. If you are one of these instructors, you may be getting busier…
Even thought the DECO Clay Craft Academy has been working with clay techniques for almost 30 years, we are continually amazed at the potential of this art form. During these past years and all the exhibits we have participated in the reaction of the public remains one of such excitement and wonder. My mother and I are looking forward to what the future holds for this unique art and are very happy to have such wonderful membership base that loves this art as much as we do. There is nothing out there that can compare with what this craft has to offer and we are so happy to share this with everyone. I would really like to say to everyone learning our craft, “putting your heart into this craft makes so many people happy and to enjoy each and every experience.”
Our distributor, The Madden Corporation has a showroom in the LA Mart. During the show they set up book signing at the showroom on Friday night. We met so many wonderful people and it was so much fun. Thank you so much for all your support!
