3 Bowl-Making Sessions

This year, all of the public bowl-making events will be held at either Spartanburg Art Museum Art School, located at Chapman Cultural Center, or West Main Artists Co-op in Spartanburg. At these events, the public is invited to make handmade pottery bowls. No experience is necessary, and all materials, including instruction by Carolina Clay Artists, are free. The bowls are left to be glazed and fired, and eventually used on Soup Day. Organizers hope to have more than 1,400 bowls made this year. Please join us on the following dates:

Saturday, June 16
at Spartanburg Art Museum, Chapman Cultural Center
10 a.m.–12 p.m.  &  1–3 p.m.

Saturday, July 7
at West Main Artists’ Co-op
1-4 p.m. p.m.

Saturday, July 14
at Spartanburg Art Museum, Chapman Cultural Center
10 a.m.–12 p.m.  &  1–3 p.m.

Saturday, Sept. 29
Indigo Hall, downtown Spartanburg

Hundreds of brilliantly glazed, handcrafted bowls will fill up the art gallery at Spartanburg Art Museum at Chapman Cultural Center’s on To be Determined. It is truly an impressive sight! Patrons will donate $15 per bowl and enjoy unlimited gourmet soups, bread, and tea in Chapman's lobby. It’s the philanthropic spirit that will be really satisfying. All proceeds will go toward TOTAL Ministries this year. Last year, $33,500 went toward feeding hungry citizens of Spartanburg after the public made more than 1,000 clay bowls in months prior to the event. Regional musicians are also at Soup Day, performing free throughout the day, and a drum circle allows attendees to make their own music. For just $20, get your fill of soup and entertainment, 11 a.m.–4 p.m.

Many people get several bowls and use them as meaningful gifts throughout the year.
