With just a little bit of guidance from the Hopkins High School art students, community members learned to spin the pottery wheel on Feb. 8. They were creating ceramic bowls for the upcoming Empty Bowls event.

Students, civic leaders, and community members enjoyed each others company as they created unique and artistic bowls. Some people made ceramic bowls by spinning the wheel, while others painted the bowls with an artistic flare.

The 21st annual Empty Bowls fundraiser is slated for Tuesday, March 12 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Hopkins Center for the Art, 1111 Mainstreet, Hopkins. The free event invites community members for a meal of soup and bread. Community members can choose a handmade bowl made by local students and community members as a symbol of the empty food bowls in our community.

Dozens of local restaurants donate a variety of delicious soups throughout the day, and attendees can fill their bowl with a soup of their choice. All are welcome to attend and make a freewill donation. All the money raised will go toward ResourceWest and ICA Foodshelf.
