The Project grew from pottery classes that were taught in drop-in centres for the homeless in Manchester, The Booth Centre and Life Matters (Minshull Street Day Centre).

A community voluntary group was formed with a Committee and a Constitution. The Manager of the 113 bed Salvation Army Hostel in Manchester offered a room to base classes in. Weekly classes were held there for 2 years.

two groups of residents visited the Potteries in Stoke on Trent.


MANCAT funded a course and work was exhibited at their End of Year Show.

In 2006, we moved to our own fully equipped premises in The Windrush Millennium Centre in Moss Side. We are now able to offer classes to people from an increasing number of agencies.
