Let’s make bowls!
Hosted by Penland School of Craft February 15 & 22
Mitchell County Shepherd Staff Food Bank and Dig In! Yancey Community Garden are two local organizations are focused on ending hunger in our neighborhood – and they need your support! Each year, these organizations host popular Empty Bowls events to raise money for the cause. This year, we are combining our efforts to gather together the many beautiful bowls it takes to make these events possible.
What is Empty Bowls?
If you have not participated before, Empty Bowls asks participating artists to create and donate bowls for events, at which a simple and delicious meal of soup, bread and dessert is provided from local restaurants and families. Guests choose a bowl that day and to keep as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. Ticket sales help to fund the hunger-fighting organizations, and bring folks together for an evening of sharing and community.
Join us! We’ll be making bowls, mugs, cups, and vases in the Clay studio
February 15, 10am – 6pm: Wheel throwing till 2pm/trimming till 6pm & hand building all day. Clay has been generously donated by The Village Potters & Laguna Clay
February 22,10am–6pm: Glazing. Glazing. Glazing.
What to bring? Yourself of course! A Pot-luck snack or drink to share, your favorite tools, apron, towel and bucket.
