Clayfolk potters are welcome to take bowls and other clay donations to Ellen Johnson at Options which is located at 1215 SW G St, Grants Pass, OR 97526. They are open during normal business hours five days a week. Another way to donate is to bring bowls to meetings or give at our Clayfolk show in November. Another is to call or email Roxanne Hunnicutt, Josephine County Empty Bowls chair. She can be reached at (541) 479-1349 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, potters are encouraged to attend the dinner.The soups are great, but truly, the opportunity of see community members choosing from the wealth of bowls and then coveting the bowls they take home is really the highlight! Your ticket also helps to feed the hungry in our county. And Josephine County has a great deal of food uncertainty. We need your help.

Participants will learn how to turn flat slabs of grey clay into dynamic beautiful pieces that will enliven people’s everyday food and beverage routines. Annie will demonstrate how she prepares the clay, imprints patterns, works with texture, and uses templates for consistency in production. She will discuss different ideas about making pieces for daily use, development of form, making templates, and her glazing theory. Most importantly, she shares the tricks of making and the meticulous details of construction that she has honed in her own studio practice.

Our wonderful Library committee just posted the new resource materials purchased from funds raised at the 2016 Clayfolk Show & Sale.
A portion of the profits from the annual Clayfolk Show & Sale go to provide a resource for our members and the public through the purchase of books and videos for the Jackson and Josephine county library systems.
