MannaWorks Clay Studio at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is a working pottery studio that is first and foremost a space for guests of Manna Meal Kitchen to learn about and explore creating functional and sculptural art with clay. MannaWorks Clay Studio also provides retreat & workshop programming linking clay, spirituality, creativity and expressions of justice and community. MannaWorks Clay Studio is an integral part of the Parish House Beehive of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church which includes Manna Meal Kitchen, the Restorative Justice Center, Michigan Peace Team, The Boggs Educational Center as well as other individuals and organizations that focus on justice, peace, creativity, spirituality and healing. We plan to have the studio operational by April 2013.
Vision Statement: MannaWorks Clay Studio will be a place where neighbors can join together to create art across lines of class, race and faith.
Mission Statement: To provide a working pottery studio for Manna Meal guests to develop a safe space for creating ceramic art in the Corktown Community for the sake of joy, the strengthening of community and supplementary income.
