Mudflat Pottery School

Somerville, Mass.



Mudflat Studio promotes interest in the ceramic arts through classes and workshops, sales, and residencies for professional artists. Its programming includes classes for adults, schools, and youth groups and off-site classes at after-school programs and senior centers. Mudflat also is involved in neighborhood revitalization efforts and is renovating a former theater building to provide a state-of-the art ceramic facility featuring larger classrooms and additional artist studios. This technical-assistance grant advances the development of a business plan rooted in capitalization principles.
