Make a pottery bowl Aug. 15 or Aug. 17

The public is invited to make clay bowls this Thursday, Aug. 15 and Saturday, Aug. 17 as part of the Hub City Empty Bowls 2013 fundraiser project in Spartanburg.

The sites are West Main Artists Co-op on Thursday, Aug. 15 from 6-8:30 p.m. (during ArtWalk) and Chapman Cultural Center on Saturday, Aug. 17 from 10 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. There is no cost to make the bowls. All materials — professional-quality clay, studio, expert instruction — are provided at no cost.

The bowls will be used on Saturday, Nov. 9 — Soup Day — when patrons enjoy a variety of soups provided by local restaurants in exchange for a set donation. The money raised will be donated to Total Ministries to curb hunger in Spartanburg. This is Hub City Empty Bowls’ fifth year; last year, the project raised $12,000 for the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen.
