Grand Opening

We hope you can join us to celebrate the grand opening of Mud Matters!
Friday, March 3, 6–8:30pm

On January 1, we took over and remodeled the former home of Mud Sweat and Tears, a 35 year old ceramic studio in Hell’s Kitchen. Renamed Mud Matters, the studio has a wonderful community of talented artists and students. In taking on this new business, we are committed to helping it thrive and to grow—and also to exploring more ways to promote ceramics in NYC.
