Empty Bowls 2013

Empty Bowls is coming back to Lillstreet.  Mark your calendar for Friday, March 1, 2013.  The event will run from 5PM to 8PM.  Join us for a modest meal of soup and bread served in a bowl donated by a ceramic artist that you may take home as a reminder of all the other bowls you will have helped to fill.

Bowls are $25 each, and there is no limit to the number of bowls you may purchase. Sales begin at 5pm on a first-come, first-served basis. There will also be a silent auction of artist-crafted items.

We are asking for handmade bowl donations from all students. Every bowl makes a big difference! If you can't spare a bowl, we will gladly accept silent auction donations.   

If you have bowls to donate, please drop off your bowl donation to the designated cart in the ceramics area (near the east stairwell) AFTER February 1ST or ship to Lillstreet, 4401 N. Ravenswood, Chicago, IL 60640. For silent auction items, please drop off with Julia Zema in 3rd floor office or at the front desk. 

Individuals interested in volunteering for this event should also contact Julia Zema ( to RSVP for a volunteers meeting on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 6:30PM in the Cafe.

A New Year and a new session

Class starts this week.  Have you signed up yet?  There are still many spots available.  What's better than spending time with friends in a friendly, well lit and warm environment making art during these cold winter months?  Nothing, I say!  So, come to class or sign up for class if you haven't already.

Also, here's an article in TimeOutChicago about Lillstreet's shop and gallery:
