Webb students show creativity for Empty Bowls Project
Posted September 25, 2012
Students at The Webb School are joining others from area high schools handcrafting ceramic bowls as part of the Empty Bowls benefit planned in Shelbyville. The event, slated from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Oct 11, at First Baptist Church in Shelbyville, will be hosted by the Next Step Home and Fresh Start Center.
For the price of a $20 ticket, those attending will be served potato soup in a handmade pottery bowl that they can keep, along with a roll and dessert. The meal will be prepared by Legends Restaurant in Shelbyville. The benefit will include a silent auction of other unique items. Ticket and other proceeds will stock the pantries of the non-profit organizations hosting the event. Those attending are also being asked to contribute canned food items for First Baptist Church Pantry.
Webb donated the clay, glaze, other supplies and firing for the Empty Bowls project, and Webb middle school students also crafted bowls. Supervising the work at the Webb workshop was Sue Wood, middle school art and pottery teacher. Assisting Wood were Judy Pierce and Sharon Reagor, community volunteers.
Tickets are available at First Community Bank, Vance Clay Realty, or at the door. Take out will also be available. For more information and tickets, contact Linda Vannetta at 931-580-5930 or 931-437-2278 or Vivian Lovvorn at 931-437-3222.
