Open Studio Day // Empty Bowl, Full Heart Dinner

Open Studios // Saturday January 19th and 26th

Event // Thursday, February 14th, 2019

Volunteer your time and learn to make pottery! Craigardan will open the studio for two days of making on Saturday, January 19th and Saturday, January 26th for community members to come make a bowl or two to donate.  Studio assistants will be on hand to help those who need it, or to teach a beginner how to make a simple slab bowl.  The bowls will be available for purchase at the February 14th Empty Bowl, Full Heart dinner at the Keene School.

Please RSVP by email at to join us in the studio.

Craigardan is proud to be a partner in this Winter's Empty Bowl, Full Heart dinner in honor of Carmina Leabres Drake.  The dinner has been organized by community members to honor Carmina and perpetuate the charitable concept of the traditional empty bowl dinner here in Keene.  All proceeds will benefit local initiatives to fight hunger.  

Potters will be busy throwing bowls, and restaurants and farmers will be preparing food to donate to the event.  Participants can purchase a bowl, fill it with food for a light meal, and take the bowl home as a reminder of those who go hungry around the world and around the corner.  Bowls are available for a $15 donation, the meal is free.

Purchase your bowls in advance online now! Make a donation in advance with a credit card and choose your bowls after checking in at the registration table on the 14th. Click the button below and select “Empty Bowl, Full Heart Dinner Event”
