Inspirations Studio is a project of Sistering a woman’s organization that offers practical and emotional support to women and works to change social conditions, which endanger women’s welfare.
Inspirations Studio is a micro-business incubator for low-income women who have been impacted by poverty, homelessness, trauma and mental health issues.
Our members attend the Studio to learn pottery and businesses skills so that they can earn income. The program facilitates the recovery of self-esteem, respect, dignity and creates a community of entrepreneurs.
Inspirations Studio is staffed by professional potters and has three electric wheels, two kick wheels, two electric kilns, an extruder and slab roller. Members are taught both handbuilding and wheel throwing; each member is responsible for all aspects of her pottery production with the exception of firing.
