Ceramics Classes every Friday from 12noon to 2pm
Come learn basic ceramic skills including basic slab building, coil building surface design techniques and much more. Featuring a revolving crew of local ceramics artists to teach us all the skills we need to create things for our home, our friends, and to sell. Classes are tought by local artists who will be teaching basic, fundamental skills to begin your ceramic practice. Though everyone is welcome to attend the classes, we encourage refugee and immigrants specifically to come to the classes, especially those that might be interested in becoming involved at Welcome as artists, teachers, and employees.
Each month we feature a contemporary immigrant artist living in Cincinnati. Openings are always during the Second Saturday Camp Washington Art Walk.
Many people at Welcome aspire to have their own art and craft businesses. We foster those dreams by providing mentorship in business skills, helping participants start their own brand, marketing and selling their products, and hosting workshops facilitated by our artisans and business professionals. Contact us if you are an immigrant artist interested in gaining experience and support or a business professional interested in volunteering and supporting your newest neighbors!
On the horizon: Teaching Kitchen and Market
We are in the process of opening a Teaching Kitchen and Market to share ethnic foods and cooking classes with the community. At the kitchen we will host classes, sell produce from our community gardens, stock dry goods in a partnership with Dean’s Mediterranean, and stock prepared foods made by local refugees and immigrants. The kitchen will provide a community-centered and healthy option to those living in the food desert of Camp Washington. The kitchen is currently under construction with an expected opening in November 2019. Thank you to Impact 100 for making this possible!
