What is Out of the Clay?
Out of the Clay is designed to provide a hands on opportunity for people, young and old, to learn about God’s redemptive love and grace for them. Participants dig into scripture while digging into the mines. From the Dig, to the Wash, to the Make, we aim to cultivate creativity while pointing to hope in our Creator.
Stacy MacDonald, Owner and Designer of made as well as the Founder of OOTC says, " For me, made has been the greatest catalyst out of years of depression, anxiety, self harm, and self loathing. Everything from using my hands to my process for making jewelry has become this beautiful analogy of how Christ pulls us out of the miry clay. If stones that have been buried since creation can now be found and cleaned and turned into something for others, how much greater is His plan for me?! For us! This is the idea that I hope resonates throughout Out of the Clay."
“I really felt that this was a great tangible way to see what God does for us. He gets us out of our sin and cleans us up and makes us into something beautiful.”
“I gained relationships with amazing women, a sense of belonging, and an understanding of just how much attention to detail our Heavenly Father has.” -Tadonna
“No matter what type of "Clay" that you’re stuck in, God has a special process of bringing you out to restore you so that you can be made new.” -Shari
“The girls rallied around me to help me complete my jewelry through my frustration. I wasn’t allowed to give up, like I tend to do. I also got to see a physical representation of how God sees us. It was a very precious and memorable weekend for me!” -Desiree

OUT OF THE CLAY: A STORY & STUDY FROM THE MINE TO MADE
Join with others all across the country who are digging into this unique message of Hope and Redemption.
This book not only paints the visual for each step of production (from the mine to a finished piece of jewelry), but it includes Stacy’s testimony while providing the most important piece of the whole process… Hope. Based off of Psalm 40:1-3 and patterned after the four main phases of made production, the book will get you into Scripture as you Gear Up, embark on Dig Day, labor through The Wash, and sit at the table for The Make. What results will be something wonderfully made
