Ceramic Bowl Makers Community Event with Amanda Jane Crouse: Saturdays in January 2024 (1/6, 1/13, & 1/20), 2:00 pm-4:00pm
Make ceramic bowls for the Food Bank’s Empty Bowl fundraiser and event.
Join ceramist Amanda Jane Crouse on Saturdays in January to throw a bowl, build a bowl, really any vessel to hold soup!  Any and all experience welcomed.  Registration appreciated but room for drop in! Our goal is 50 bowls from the Arts Center to go to the Food Bank event slated for February 2024.

“Our vision for the 2024 event is not just to present an empty vessel for folks to take home, but for it to be a reminder that we each have a part to play in building a stronger Northeast Georgia – and, just like food security and compassion for our neighbors, art is also a hallmark of a thriving community.” – Jana Hartwell, Food Bank Manager of Donor Experience.

Once our beautiful bowl make it to the Empty Bowl event, each artist/maker would be able to mark their donation by having a small business card size note inside each bowl that reads, “This was made by YOUR NAME, artist from Lyndon House Arts Center.”
