Since 1990, the participants in our Ceramics Shop have created a variety of custom quality bisque and ceramic products for special events and local businesses. During the holiday season, the participants work hard to produce the Official Holiday Ornament for Daytona Beach. Designed by a well-renowned artist, a new ornament is unveiled each year as the piece is added to the limited edition, collector’s series.
Our customers include Contemporary Ceramic Studios, Daytona Beach Kennel Club, Old Spanish Sugar Mill, Staed Hotels and others.
Come by and take a tour of our studio to see a variety of unique items on display and available for purchase. If you don’t see what you want, please ask about custom products, including items with a special theme or your company logo.
In our Food Service program, participants learn all the steps in food preparation and service in a full commercial kitchen. The program provides snacks and lunches for participants and staff and provides catering services to WORC, Inc. meetings and events as well as to community businesses. The dining hall is open at 12 noon to any community member who would like to purchase lunch from our food service program. The cost is a very reasonable $3.50, including a drink.
Several of our food service participants have used their training to secure jobs in the community.
Woodshop & RESPECT of Florida
The participants in our woodshop are trained to create a variety of products which are sold through RESPECT of Florida (a governmental state use program), a program encouraging public and government agencies to purchase products and supplies that are made by individuals with disabilities.
