NANAIMO – Woodlands Secondary School's pottery program and student council are looking for prospective potters.

Woodlands Secondary School’s pottery program and student council are looking for prospective potters to assist in a fundraiser.

Student council is hosting its Empty Bowl Event in December, benefiting Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank, and people are being sought to take part in ceramic bowl making Saturday (Nov. 7) and a week later, on Nov. 14. Work will take place at the school’s pottery studio.

Participants will make bowls in two-hour shifts, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on both days and bowls will be used for the actual dinner fundraiser, which will take place Dec. 10 at the high school. Tickets for the fundraiser are $10 for students and $15 for adults.

People participating in the bowl making are asked to bring a non-perishable food item.

To sign up for a shift, please contact Clarice Tyce at or Jean Kloppenburg at
