Cancer is something we all too often come into contact with now, so this is for everyone. In 2013, my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer and developed further complications with her health during this time. If it were not initiatives like the Beatson Pebble Appeal www.beatsonpebbleappeal.org continuing to pioneer cancer research, I would have lost her many times over. Thanks to this research and a great medical team, my mum is a survivor – but others aren't so fortunate.
So I'm playing to my own strengths and bringing people together to aid those amazing people who push forward in the fight to save the people we love. That's why I've started Paint Your Jugs and Bowls for Your Nuts – a cheeky paint-your-own pottery fundraiser to benefit the Beatson Pebble Appeal.
It works like this: Join us for one of our Sunday sessions at City Ceramics Studio, and paint a jug or a bowl any way you like. I and others from ”Team Jugs” will be there to guide you, and make it fun and easy. Anyone can do it – you don't have to be an artist!
Once your jug or bowl has been fired, you can collect it on the 12th November. Or you can donate it to our exhibition, which will culminate in an auction of the wares on our final event night, 12th November at Maryhill Burgh Halls.
There is a pricing system to the size of jugs or bowl that you choose to paint – more information available on the webpage or social media pages.
All paint-your-own-pottery sessions will take place from 1 to 4 PM at City Ceramics Studio, Maryhill Burgh Halls, 10-24 Gairbraid Avenue, Glasgow, G2 4NY. Please book a place to ensure we have enough wares to go round!
