This week's blog was written by visual artist, Lea K. Tawd.
Have you heard about our Community Bowl Project yet? Every 1st Thursday you can stop by the shop from 2-6 and paint your own bowl for free! If you are in love with your masterpiece, you can come back to purchase it for only $10. 100% of the proceeds go to Sisters of the Road Cafe, a local non-profit that helps feed the homeless. Or you can leave it and we will offer it up for sale to someone else.
This project is for all ages--I brought my 3 year old in and she painted her bowl for over an hour (supervised--I opted to come paint my own another time). Now she always wants to use her "painted bowl." This would be a great way to take care of some early holiday gifts, too! Bowls are dishwasher and microwave safe.
This project is thanks to the generous time and materials donation by one of our glass artists, Michael Barley.
Our next 1st Thursday event is on September 7th--be sure to drop by to paint a bowl! While you're here you can browse the art, have a snack, and enjoy a tasting from a local distillery.
