On Wednesday, September 25th, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., the college’s ceramics program will host the first official Cuesta College Clay Stomp on its San Luis Obispo Campus. The stomp will take place on the grassy area between the Fine Arts building (building 7100) and cafeteria (building 5100) and is expected to include at least 100 participants, including students, faculty, staff and community members. The 5,000 pounds of clay will be used in six ceramics classes over the course of the year.

“Students are accustomed to using pre-mixed, ready to use clay; they don’t realize the work that goes into clay preparation,” said ceramics instructor Jarred Pfeiffer. “This activity will hopefully result in a new appreciation for the clay.” 

The public is invited to attend. For more information, please contact Jarred Pfeiffer at jarred_pfeiffer@cuesta.edu.
