Union Project Ceramics Co-op Artists
The Union Project Ceramics Cooperative seeks to assist emerging artists in growing and strengthening their creative process in a supportive, communal environment.
By being a gathering of artists who create together in a shared space, energize one another, and collaborate, the co-op seeks to contribute to Union Project’s greater mission to use our space to bring people together to connect, create, and celebrate.
