Union Project is an arts, enterprise, and events center that makes space to connect, create, and celebrate community. Just one of Union Project’s community ceramics programs, the Clay Case, formerly known as The Dirt Bag, is the latest innovation coming out of the studio and into Pittsburgh homes–a clay kit for families to do together at home. This studio-to-go includes all the materials, tools, tips, and inspiration to create and learn with clay. After the making, families can bring their creations to Union Project’s studio to be fired, get a Clay Case refill, try the potter’s wheel, and see artists at work in a community studio. The Sprout Fund is making it possible to develop this product and give away 200 kits and begin sales of 100 kits to Pittsburgh families. Other Clay Case supporters include Standard Ceramic Supply and Whole Foods Market.
