Empty Bowls Fundraiser

We have scheduled two workshops to make bowls for the MVCT Empty Bowls fundraiser in October.

Empty Bowls WS I — Sunday, August 29 at 1:00

Empty Bowls WS II –Sunday September 19th at 1:00

Please come and bring your friends.
There is no charge unless you want to Buy Your Own Bowl for $10.

Patrons purchase a hand-painted ceramic bowl for $10 and get a lunch of soup at no charge. Last year’s event was cancelled due to COVID but we made $1500 for the church’s food pantry in 2019.

You do not have to know how to paint. We have stencils, silkscreens, and patterns to trace. OR you can use a crystal glaze or dripping glaze. There are all kinds of possibilities and we have a printout with some ideas. Last time we had 19 painters and hope that they can all come back this year. Most were able to paint two bowls during the 3-hour workshop. Some of the bowls we did were adding decals to Dollar Tree pre-glazed white bowls. Easy to do. Our goal is 100 bowls.

Want to Play with Clay? We have clay puzzling molds and a pattern to make a flower dish. Or you can hand build. Need to do these at Workshop I so they can dry and be painted at Workshop II.

If you are still in isolation, you can pick up bowls to paint at home (or we can deliver)

If you can’t make the workshop dates you can come at another time.

Monetary donations are also accepted to purchase supplies. Or you can donate items for the Chinese Auction.

Thanks in advance for your support.
