Etsy Mud Team Membership Requirements

This promotional team is only for makers working in clay. For general discussions open to everyone, please join us here.­scussions

This team is open to all clay artists, regardless of skill.

Shop Inventory - You must have at least 6 clay items in your shop when you apply, so we can get a good feel for your inventory. Shops must maintain at least 40% of their total inventory in handmade clay items. Pieces are to be made start to finish using wet clay or slip and can be wheel thrown, slab/hand-built, or formed from original molds. Only these original clay works may use the team tag in their listings. (etsymudteam) Items deemed mature by Etsy's standard may not use the tag, and will not count towards your 40% clay items.

We require that you keep the first 2 featured items in your shop, ones that meet our team requirements, as these first two items are featured on the front page of our website. Please keep these photos as actual items for sale, and not reserved notices, or other types of signs.

You may have other clay work in your shop, but no more than 10% of your total clay inventory may be created using alternative methods (ie: commercial molds, ram press) and this must be disclosed in those listings. These items may not use the team tag. Special circumstances can be made for those using these methods in non-traditional, experimental ways. Please see the team leaders for details.

Membership Dues – Membership dues are $15 per annum and are due in January. Members who fail to pay their dues will be dropped from the Team. Dues are non-refundable. The dues are used to maintain and improve our website, and for various advertising campaigns throughout the year.

Event Participation - Members will be active in Team events. We do not expect members to participate in all events, but at least 2 per year. You may substitute a $10 monetary contribution to the Team PayPal account for 1 event per year. Challenges and other events are important to the team, as they help drive traffic to our website.

Our Event Schedule is posted on the website – click the Calendar of Events tab. This schedule is updated regularly and is always current. Please contact dbabcock (Deb), Event Coordinator, with any questions regarding our events.­?ArticleID=15

Event Prize Donations – Members donating prizes to our events/challenges will receive an “event participation” credit should their prize be selected by the event/challenge winner.

Participation in the discussions in our forums is not mandatory, but it is recommended for you to remain connected and get full benefit from the team.

Treasury participation is not required, but creating treasuries using team members is encouraged. You can easily find member items by including the team tag in your searches (etsymudteam).

We look forward to meeting you!
