This is amazing… the 2nd year that I’ve organized our Empty Bowls Dinner Event at my school and the response is incredible! We have our Family Bowl Making night tonight and last time (2 years ago), we had 20-25 families come to make a bowl. It wasn’t too crazy but this year we have…. get ready for it…. 55 families coming to make a ceramic bowl together!!! Holy Moly! So, it’s been a bit hectic and wonderful! I am so excited to stand on that stage and have 55 families / over 200 people creating artwork together! Clay really does bring the community together! I promise to share photos after it’s all over.
I’ve done a lot of organizing, pre-rolling slabs of clay on muslin pieces to separate them in stacks. I learned from last time that you shouldn’t stack slabs of wet clay together with 30 of them because they STICK! Doh.. So this year I got smart. Easy to transport and easy to hand out! Bins of texture tools, lace, styluses for cutting or drawing, and letter stamp sets will be shared at cafeteria tables. It will be a busy hour of creating but I can’t wait to see the looks on people’s faces as they work together to create a treasured family artwork! YAY!
I’ll update soon!
