Student Show

This one night flash show is a fantastic opportunity for students to display work during the symposium. Start planning now! You must preregister your work before you arrive at the symposium. Student Show

Show your Stuff

Show Your Stuff is an event that turns the symposium attendee into the symposium presenter.  Participants have the opportunity to present a 5 minute presentation of their personal work in the beautiful Yuma Theater on Friday night of the symposium.  It is a wonderful way to get your work out in public, practice your public speaking, or, if desired, ask the audience for their constructive feedback.

Pin Swap

For 35 years participants have made pins, usually in their preferred media, ranging from the goofy to the sublime. The best access to and selection of pins will be at registration at Lutes Casino on Thursday. However, pins are traded and sold throughout the symposium.

Saw, file & solder sprints

Three-person relay teams usually, but not necessarily, skilled in metals convert the making of a simple ring into an exciting sports event. Naturally, gorgeous trophies will be awarded to the winning teams. Put a team together, plan your costumes and challenge the champs!


There is a limited amount of camping at Tomkins Pottery located at 94 W 2nd street. No need to make a reservation.  We’ve always had enough room. Everyone seems to find a place for their tents.

Go thru the double gates between 90 and 94 W 2nd St. just west of the Tomkins Pottery.  Unload and then park along 1st Ave up the hill.  There is no parking beyond the gates in the compound. We need to be able to get our van in and out and we share this space with tenants.

We serve a small breakfast for the campers on Friday and Saturday and there are usually some impromptu social activities around a bonfire at nite.
