Self Help, Inc. and the Empty Bowls Project raises thousands of dollars to support the basic needs of people in Northern New Mexico.
Over the past 25 years, many talented children and adults have created bowls to donate to the Empty Bowls Project which is held every March in Los Alamos. Preparing the 400 to 500 bowls for the event has become a year-round activity.
In addition to offering traditional glazed ceramic bowl-making opportunities, Green Bowls are being donated to the Empty Bowls Project.
Green Bowls or Upcycled Bowls utilize readily available recyclable materials such as magazines, printer paper, paper máché, or newspapers to create handcrafted decorative containers.
The first series of Green Bowl workshops, taught be Deborah Gill, will be from 1-3 p.m. Friday and July 25 at the Los Alamos Teen Center. The first workshop began July 11.
“We really are happy about the partnership and collaboration with the Empty Bowls Project — we are thrilled to host the bowl-making sessions!” Sylvan Argo, director of the Teen Center.
The Los Alamos Teen Center is operated by The Family YMCA through a contract with Los Alamos County.
