The Humble Pot Project

The Humble Pot Project

What: The Humble Pot Project is a charitable & collaborative based pinch pot workshop/sit-in created & lead by Michele Quan of MQuan Studio. A pinch pot is a beautiful thing to make and to hold. With no experience necessary and no tools other than your hands, we can make something out of clay.

Why: We gather to make a simple & humble pot for us and for others, in an exercise of opening, giving & receiving.

How: Check here for upcoming dates of workshops. Participants will pay a small material & firing fee to the studio plus a workshop fee of their choice. 100% of the participant fee is donated to a pre-determined charity or cause.

About: Unlike snowboarding, hand building in clay has an 'easy-in'. We always begin with a pinch pot, a simple vessel made with your hands that houses the potential for all vessels. It is here that we are first introduced to the materials adaptability, plasticity and limitations. There is this beautiful moment of joy & focus I’ve both experienced and witnessed while making these simple pots. In The Humble Pot Project we come together to make pots for ourselves and our communities.
