Together with our dear friend ceramic artist Ellen Levenhagen, commonroom will organize two Mondays of the month of December ( 4th and 11th ) to make bowls for an Empty Bowls fundraiser. Participants will make one for themselves and one bowl for the fundraiser event. They will gain personal skills and knowledge for enhancing ceramic techniques. The Empty Bowls fundraiser is a creative and festive practice for contributing to the many Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Weeks.
The idea is to make a bowl, and donate it as part of a fundraiser. The event displays and sells all the bowls. Then the guests eat simple food for free using their purchased bowls.
Please join us to fill a table with bowls and food and create an awareness for those who go hungry and need our assistance. The empty bowls fundraiser event and our New year’s party will be December 18th, Monday at 18:30 so please SAVE the DATE!
