The POTluck Initiative
The POTluck Initiative is our non-profit arm dedicated to accessibility and transformative ceramics programming. We educate Black & Brown communities via scholarships, free community workshops, artist residencies, and professional development training. Formerly known as our Community Programming, we have been dedicated to this work since our inception in 2017. With your support, this new initiative aims to increase the impact and accessibility of ceramic arts in our communities.
Unfortunately the high overhead of supplies and labor involved with ceramics can make it inaccessible to some. We have always aimed to bridge this gap by not turning anyone away due to lack of funds.
As we grow in popularity and receive a larger volume of requests for assistance, we appreciate any donations from organizations and individuals to assist us in keeping this spirit alive. Through donations or memberships to our Community Table, you can help us continue to change lives through pottery.

SPONSOR A MEMBERSHIP!
Your $240 donation provides one month of free membership for an emerging ceramicist who wants to develop their practice for the potential of self employment. Includes 24/7 access to studio, 25lbs of clay, firing, and access to our glazes.

We intentionally make ceramics education accessible to Black & Brown communities through The POTluck Initiative. For those wanting to try pottery but finding it difficult to afford, you can now apply for sliding scale and scholarships through our program.
