Empty Bowls Throw Down

2 Sundays, February 2 and 9, 2014 - Come to one session or both!
1:00 - 4:00 pm

Empty Bowls Throw Down is an open community bowl making session to help support the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank

Union Project invites you to Throw Down – A bowl-making party to support the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank’s 18th Annual Empty Bowls Dinner. Throw Down is a hands-on event and will be held in our ceramics studio at 801 N. Negley Avenue. We will make bowls (both handbuilding and throwing) on Sunday, February 2nd from 1 pm to 4 pm, and then will glaze those bowls the following Sunday, February 9th.  Community members of all skill levels and experience are welcome to come out and throw, hand build, or decorate a bowl for a great cause! We’ll have clay, pottery wheels, and plenty of work space available and some of our ceramics co-op members will be on hand to help out. All the bowls created during Throw Down will be fired and finished at Union Project, and then donated to the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank for their Empty Bowls fundraiser on March 2, 2014.

Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank

Empty Bowls is a national grassroots effort to fight hunger. At an Empty Bowls fundraiser, guests receive a handcrafted bowl and a simple meal of soup and bread. Guests keep their bowl as a reminder of those struggling to feed their families. Union Project is proud to support the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank by creating and donating ceramic bowls!
