Everyone kept asking where I was last night and why I was painting eyes on cute little bowls...well here is a little more info on the fun event I attended on May 10, 2017 at Whole Foods Market on Waugh.
The Houston Food Bank and Whole Foods Montrose hosted a really fun event in Houston yesterday and my sister and I had the pleasure of attending! It was an event with light bites provided by Whole Foods and Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company provided samples of some very delicious beers. Mad Potter was there to provide the ceramic bowls and paints for us to paint hence the hashtag #brewsforbowls that we all used for this event.
This fabulous event was really important to create community and bring us all together to support Empty Bowls Houston "which is a grassroots effort by artists, skilled crafters, students and teachers dedicated to alleviating hunger in the greater Houston area".
The 13th Annual Empty Bowls Houston will be
Saturday June 3, 2017 from 11am-3pm
at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft 4848 Main Street Houston, Texas 77002
For a minimum donation of $25, attendees have the pleasure of selecting a bowl from hundreds of one of a kind hand crafted bowls donated by the Houston area ceramists, then receive a simple lunch of soup donated by Whole Foods Market and freshly prepared by Houston Food Bank Community Kitchen. Pottery and woodturning demonstrations and live music will be featured that day as well.
The empty bowls serve to remind us of of all the empty bowls in our community and around the world. It is such a neat idea and I'm really excited to have been a part of this. I gave my bowl a very Leyla Moon twist to it and decorated it with some really eye catching eyes! A very special shoutout to Whole Foods Market for hosting such a fun event with some really amazing people...honestly can't wait for the next one!
