Link to the Mission At JustWork, we aspire to be a part of a healthy community where people are meaningfully and gainfully employed and where business practices embrace an ethical, social mandate.
To achieve this, JustWork offers dignified, meaningful work opportunities for people facing multiple barriers to employment through operating three social enterprises: JustCatering, JustRenos and JustPotters. A social enterprise is an organization pursuing both social/environmental and financial goals. Central to our organization's aim is the social value of creating working contexts where those with some kind of disability or working barrier can become agents of their own transformation.
JustPotters (founded in 2006) is a social enterprise operated by JustWork Economic Initiative. Our goal is to offer dignified work for people who face barriers to employment, while providing our wholesale, and retail customers with beautiful, locally handcrafted ceramics.
We are currently looking for JustPotters Manager who can oversee the production of ceramics to both retail stores and direct sales to customers. The manager is also responsible for overseeing pottery classes and workshops that are scheduled on a regular basis throughout the year.

Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn and the tapestry instructor at The School of SweetGeorgia. I am a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I created Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a single space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as Community Highlights.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just fill out the form at the top of this page, or send your press release to me at
