Empty Bowls Project Whetstone

I first became acquainted with The Empty Bowls Project several years ago when I was throwing pots downtown Columbus at The Arsenal. When I moved to The Martin Janis Center I participated in Empty bowls through their ceramics program.
Empty Bowls started out as a class project in an Elementary School in Detroit and now has become a project participated around the world by adults as well as children.
The concept is simple. Collect bowls from community ceramics classes, host a soup supper. Collect donations at the supper to support the local food banks, letting the patrons select a bowl.
I hope to donate a few bowls to this project this year through Whetstone Recreation Center.
