Empty Bowl Pottery Course- Volunteers Needed!


FINE ARTS, CRAFTS, FIBER, WOOD, & PHOTOGRAPHY -
Fall/Winter 2023

Calling all experienced potters!

This is an opportunity for individuals who have previous wheel experience and feel relatively comfortable throwing bowl forms to come to the CVU Pottery Studio and practice their skills while supporting a great cause. During this course, you will create and finish a collection of 15-20+ bowls depending on your proficiency.  All the bowls will be be donated to the Empty Bowls* Fundraiser, and tickets will be sold to benefit the Hinesburg Food Shelf. This is a great opportunity for additional throwing time, to connect with other potters, and to uplift our community!

*Empty Bowls is a grassroots movement, let by artists and crafts people, in cities and towns around the world to raise money for food related charities and to bring awareness about food insecurity within local communities. To learn more about Empty Bowls visit https://emptybowls.com/

This course is lead by current CVU Student, Teryn Hytten.  Teryn Hytten is passionate about pottery and has extensive wheel throwing experience. Teryn has honed her craft working in the CVU studio, the Shelburne Craft School, the Middlebury Studio School as well as her home studio. Teryn spent many years attending empty bowl dinners at UVM and is excited to bring this tradition to CVU through the Access program.  

Layout of classes:

  • 3-4 sessions of wheel throwing
  • 2-3 sessions of trimming
  • 2-3 sessions of glazing

The Empty Bowl Fundraiser Soup Dinner, will take place on Friday, January 19th, 2024 at CVU High School.  Tickets will go on sale January 5th!

Can't make all the pottery dates, no problem!  During the registration process, we will ask you the dates you are available and your level of experience.

All materials and supplies are provided.  We just need your desire to be part of this important fundraiser as well as your time and skill!

Thank you!
