What We Do
It’s been noted that women of color are some of the most artistic and innovative people across the globe.
But often times, it can be difficult to express that creativity and bring our ideas to life. That's why we created the Made By Us Creative Workshop - to give you an opportunity to explore your creativity in a safe space amongst other women who understand the challenges specific to us.
This workshop is an opportunity for BIPOC women to gain exposure to a vast network, build an entrepreneurial spirit, and master a new craft. We provide the space, supplies and materials; you just bring your imagination and great energy. This is the perfect way to meet other women in the community who are working on similar projects as you, as well as a place to get inspired by others' work.
Connect and collaborate with other artists and creatives.

Handbuilding Pottery Workshop
Handbuilding is a ceramics technique that allows you to create forms with clay and your hands, without using a throwing wheel. Before ceramicists invented the wheel, handbuilding was the only way they could create functional and artistic ceramic forms. All you need to get started are your clay, your hands, and a few simple tools.
