Come play with clay in support of area food banks on Saturday, April 29, at the first public bowl-a-thon being held to prepare for the 10th Sierra Vista Empty Bowls Project this fall.

The bowl-a-thon will take place on Saturday, April 29, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Pottery Studio at Sierra Vista, which is located inside the Oscar Yrun Community Center. This free event offers clay artists of all ages and skill levels an opportunity to make a hand-built slab bowl that will be given out in exchange for donations at the 2017 Sierra Vista Empty Bowls Project. Experienced potters are welcome to throw bowls on the pottery wheel.

Organizers hope to have about 1,500 handmade bowls for the 2017 Sierra Vista Empty Bowls Project. Last year’s event raised a record high of $17,500 for food banks in Cochise County.

Clay will be provided by the studio and participants can enjoy some food and refreshments while supplies last.
