A highlight of Good Cheer’s Empty Bowl Soup Night is taking home a beautiful handcrafted bowl. When Good Cheer was looking for a source to make some new bowls for this year’s Soup Night, the Paint Escape volunteered to be the place to make the unique bowls.
The Paint Escape is donating the clay, glazing and firing of the bowls for the Empty Bowl Soup Night which will be held on Sunday, October 26. What Good Cheer needs is people who will go to the Paint Escape to create the bowls.
You don’t have to have experience in working with clay to help. Tina, one of the owners of the Paint Escape, is willing to give you direction on creating your first bowl. You just need to call ahead and arrange a time. Usually Tuesday is best.
The Paint Escape has the set-up for working in clay, fused glass and for painting pre-made ceramics. If the clay idea intimidates you, you can also help raise money for Good Cheer Food Bank by painting a Piggybank. The Paint Escape will donate $7.50 of the $15 to Good Cheer Food Bank.
If you would like to throw a bowl for the Empty Bowl Soup Night, please give The Paint Escape a call at 360-331-3166. Or go to www.thepaintescape.com.
