About the Project   

People’s Pottery Project’s mission is to employ and empower formerly incarcerated women, trans and non-binary individuals through paid job training, access to a healing community, and meaningful employment in their collective non-profit ceramic business.

Their flexible programs allow participants to earn a living wage at every point of involvement with the business, from training, to fabricating, to ongoing employment. They provide opportunities to build technical skills through creative ceramic fabrication work, running the ceramics studio, and teaching ceramics classes to local artists and families, as well as develop business skills such as inventory management, writing and promotions, developing their business strategy, marketing, and sales.

Through collective work, members gain a platform to connect to others, share their stories, and ultimately transform dominant narratives about those who have experienced incarceration. Learn More About People’s Pottery Project Here
