Mudflat Studio was founded in 1971 to promote awareness and interest in the ceramic arts. It encompasses a thriving ceramics school and 36 studios for professional ceramic artists. Mudflat offers a broad range of classes and workshops for students of all ages and abilities and reaches hundreds of local children through its extensive outreach programs. Mudflat also maintains a sales gallery at the Porter Square Shopping Center in Cambridge, and a highly competitive Artist-In-Residence program.
In November 2005, Mudflat purchased the long-abandoned Broadway Theater in Somerville and in August 2011, moved into the structure, now remodeled by Brooks Mostue, Davis Square Architect, and The Casali Group, Boston, developer.
