Grand Marais Art Colony offers chance to "Make-a-Bowl"

Don't miss a chance to Make-a-Bowl for Empty Bowls this weekend! It’s a great way to learn more about pottery while serving a good cause – raising money for the local food shelf.

Make-a-Bowl for Empty Bowls will be held now until Oct. 14 on Sundays at 2 p.m., and Mondays at 7 p.m. There is a $5 tuition fee per session, and pre-registration is required.

Twelve percent of Cook County residents are hungry every month. Therefore, each year the Art Colony organizes the Empty Bowls Dinner& Silent Auction (Nov. 14), a community art fundraiser for the local food shelf.  The bowls made will be donated to the event, and participants will learn the basics of pottery and create two kinds of bowls: hand-built and a wheel-thrown.

The sessions are open to all levels and ages. Register by contacting the Art Colony at 387-2737.
