Want to make bowls with friends?

Your group of 10-20 people can schedule a time to make clay bowls in the Ceramic studio at Access Arts. Bowl-making sessions are available in January and February, and take about 90 minutes to complete. Participants are asked to pay $5 per bowl to cover the material costs. After you make your bowl, Access Arts’ staff and volunteers will fire, glaze, and re-fire the bowls in the lead up to the event. Your bowl will then be sold at the May 10th Empty Bowls event, with proceeds benefiting the Planting for the Pantry Program.

To schedule a time for your group to make bowls with Access Arts:  Contact Jennifer at AccessArts@schoolofservice.edu with “Empty Bowls 2019” in the subject line.
