The Wheel Mobile
Coming soon!

Union Project’s new mobile studio – The Wheel Mobile – will be housed in a vehicle equipped with clay, tools, a potter’s wheel, and a mobile Raku kiln.

Trained arts educators who will lead participants in hands-on ceramic activities. This will extend the programming UP currently offers by bringing clay anywhere there’s a road. Our teaching artists can literally show up at a playground, neighborhood festival, alleyway, etc. and provide wheel throwing, hand-building, and Raku firing demonstrations and activities.

Ready to bring clay to your community center, classroom,
or festival?

The Wheel Mobile is made possible by a RADical Impact Grant from the Allegheny Regional Asset District.
