EMPTY BOWL - Stacking
Crackpots is proud of our 18-year partnership with the OUR Center and the amazing way the community embraces the creativity of Empty Bowls. Due to Covid, the wonderfully bustling in-person event that usually takes place in March cannot happen as usual. Nevertheless, we want to keep this event alive, and hope you will embrace this unusual 2021 edition.
After all, community hunger is real and the OUR Center needs us more than ever!
HERE'S HOW TO HELP RAISE $ WITH EMPTY BOWLS 2021
Paint an “official” Empty Bowl AT HOME for $18+tax - It’s super simple. We send all the materials & instruction you need to paint a beautiful bowl in your AT HOME Kit. Once you return your painted piece to Crackpots, we will glaze & fire your painted item and enter it into the OUR Center's Empty Bowls sale. We ask that you turn your bowls back within one week if painting so we can include it in the sale! In addition to extending a discount to you for donating, Crackpots donates a portion of these proceeds to the OUR Center.
Buy a Finished Empty Bowl - Since we can’t have the normal event, Crackpots will be setting up an ongoing “Empty Bowls shop” in the studio at 505 Main in Longmont so you can pick one out with a $20 donation to the OUR Center. Anyone can buy one! Anyone can help! (Watch for LIVE Facebook Empty Bowls events starting in February too!)
