Hintonburg Pottery invites members of the community to join us on Sunday, November 17th, 2019 from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. to create your own handbuilt pinch pot, with all proceeds going to Parkdale Food Centre. Attendees will be encouraged to get muddy and unleash their creativity, as they explore the magic of working with clay.
“Our Holiday Open House is a delightful opportunity for our community to come together and create clay bowls! Participants keep their bowls, while the donations support the amazing work of the Parkdale Food Centre during this festive season. It’s a win win,” says Ginger McCoy, Potter and Owner of Hintonburg Pottery.
“Last year’s event was filled with excitement and the joy that emerges from creating something beautiful, we are all looking forward to it again this year.”
Handbuilding tables will be set up throughout the studio for members of the community to come together throughout the afternoon to create their own unique pinch pot, with cash donations to Parkdale Food Centre encouraged.
All pinch pots will be professionally glazed and kiln-fired by Hintonburg Pottery Technicians on site and available for pick up in mid-December at Hintonburg Pottery, before the Christmas holidays begin.
“Last year, we were able to raise enough money to provide 195 meals for the Parkdale Food Centre to distribute over the holiday season and this year we hope you will join us to give back again,” says Ginger.
This by donation-only workshop will be hosted on a rolling basis throughout the afternoon on Sunday, November 17th, 2019 from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. at Hintonburg Pottery Shop and Earthen Vessels Clay Studio.
