Who is ready for a Empty-bowl-a-thon #3? Let's Leap ahead on our efforts to make bowls!

We'll be meeting at A&A Products. Matt has been donating lots of scrap to support the SAGAG member's efforts making bowls for the Empty Bowls fundraiser to support hungry and homeless families in San Antonio. 

This is a great way to learn about glass and have some fun while helping and giving back to our community! 

This bowl-a-thon will take place at A&A Product's Studio in the Seguin. 

Can anyone help? Do I need to have experience working with glass? Anyone can help! No experience working with glass is necessary, just a willingness to learn and follow instructions. We'll need volunteers for other Bowl-A-Thons and at the Empty Bowls event on March 1. 

Do I need to bring anything? Bring your own safety glasses if you have them. You can also bring other basic glass working tools, if you have them, but there will be a few extras at the bowl-a-thon. SAGAG members are generously donating COE 90 glass (Thanks A&A Products!) for fusing and recycled glass for other techniques (bottle bowls, etc). 

Are there more opportunities to make bowls and volunteer? Absolutely - glad you asked! Here's some of the other Empty Bowls related opportunities to make bowls and volunteer. 

  • Volunteer are NEEDED to make bowls, to contribute items to the Silent Auction (doesn't have to be glass - any hand made item), to help at the event, unpack bowls, setup, help people, cashier, wrap bowls, cleanup, etc. More on this at the next SAGAG meeting. If you would like to co-chair/organize SAGAGs efforts with Empty Bowls - it's a great opportunity to get involved. Contact info@saglassguild or talk to any SAGAG board member.
  • DONATE TO SILENT AUCTION - Thanks forDonating pieces! The Glass Guild donations are well received and contribute to the success of the silent auction. You can put your business card with your piece at the auction and drop off some cards at the SAGAG table at the event. If you just need to drop off there are a couple of options:
IMPORTANT - Complete the Auction Donation Form Online
For any of these drop off choices you’ll need to fill out the donation form (name of item, estimated value, item description, any notes, are you an individual donor or business donor, would you like to be anonymous, if no then name and contact info). You're encouraged to compete the form online
    1. There is a donation box available at Southwest School of Art if you would like to donate a piece for the Empty Bowls Silent Auction.  There are forms in the box to complete as you drop off your work. Not sure how long the box will be there. I assume it’s in the ceramics studio area.
