Rogue Community College’s Ceramic Department will be hosting a Throw-a-Thon to benefit the annual Empty Bowls Project. The event will take place at the Firehouse Gallery during April’s First Friday Live on April 7th from 3-7 PM.
RCC and local potters will be utilizing the Firehouse Gallery pottery wheels to throw bowls that will be donated to the 2017 Empty Bowls Project. Local potter Roxanne Hunnicutt will then trim, bisque and glaze these bowls at her studio. Two years ago Phil Fishwick, his RCC students and community clay artists participated in a successful throw-a-thon, as well. Clay is being donated by Southern Oregon Clay Distributors.
RCC, Options and local potters would love for you to join them for the throw-a-thon at the Firehouse Gallery on the corner of H and SW 4th Street from 3-7. You will be able to see expert potters create their masterpieces and learn more about the Empty Bowls Project. Hope to see you there!
