The2018 Empty Bowls Dinner raised more than $7,000 for the food banks in Hebron, Andover and Marlborough. Workshops will be held on Friday and Saturday in the ceramics room at RHAM High School. Art teachers Carrie Dinunzio and Beverley Fisher will run all workshops with the assistance of National Art Honor Society students.
Staff, students and community members are invited to attend workshops and no experience is necessary for beginner workshops! Anyone interested in learning to work with clay and get a little messy for the cause can sign up for beginner workshops. Intermediate workshops are for volunteers comfortable working more independently with the clay. Glazing will be done at Beginner workshops starting in February. We are also seeking experienced wheel throwers who would be willing to use their talents to make bowls either at the school or in their own studio spaces. Clay would be provided.
