St. Kate’s Empty Bowl “Making” Project

Saturday, March 10, 2018 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

St. Kate’s Empty Bowl “Making” Project

Help make the bowls that will be distributed at the April 6 Bowls for Open Arms Soup Social to be held at the American Swedish Institute. The Soup Social supports the efforts of Open Arms of Minnesota – a Twin Cities-based nonprofit that creates meals for people living with life-threatening illnesses. 

Craft can make a difference!  Open Arms of Minnesota is a Twin Cities nonprofit that cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals for people living with life-threatening illnesses. The Bowls for Open Arms Soup Social features a bowl of housemade FIKA soup, bread and beverage, and a handcrafted ceramic bowl made by St. Kate’s Empty Bowl Project! The purchase of each bowl supports two made-from-scratch meals for a neighbor facing a health crisis. More than 101 bowls will be available. Advanced registration encouraged. 

Roll up your sleeves and experience the intersection of creative arts and social justice. No previous bowl making experience? No problem – ceramics students from St. Catherine University and the St. Kate's Empty Bowl Project will be on hand to make sure your bowl making adventure is enjoyable and successful. It's free and registration is not required.

Bowls for Open Arms is part of ASI's CraftBOWL exhibition  on view now through April 8. It is co-presented by regional craft organizations advocating for the advancement of the handmade: ASI, Foci - Minnesota Center for Glass Arts, Northern Clay Center and the American Association of Woodturners. Craft ambassadors from each organization have collaborated to present a selection of handmade bowls available for purchase, with 100% of the proceeds going to Open Arms of Minnesota.
