Making is a vehicle to acknowledge one's sense of belonging and worthiness. MudGirls Studios provides a safe environment, education and skill development through the making of ceramic arts. These skills contribute to the overall health and improved quality of life for women and the community in which they live. 

Working the mud and making art is creative and transformative. 

Taking a chunk of clay and giving it form and shape, transforming it into a beautiful usable object, gives the maker a sense of accomplishment and affirms one’s own existence: "I make, therefore I am."  

Selling is as important as the making itself, since it offers supplemental income to women in need.

Making is connectedness, self-expression, 

and self-empowerment.
