Well 4 years ago ‘big blue’ the furnace that has provided heat for our building for over 50 years – stopped dead never to work again (or so the song goes…) We then switched to electric heat but the last two years have left staff and volunteers with red noses and the need for extreme layering of sweaters & tights in the winter and an never ending fight against silverfish in the summer. So to dry out this old building and avoid staff popsicles, we need to move back to gas heat. So we are hosting a fundraiser December 6th to raise the $6000 to get a new furnace – and we need your help!!!!!
We are asking our members to help by submitting practical, fanciful, sculptural or downright crazy mugs in a variety of media for this December’s fundraiser. We welcome mugs of all sorts –the drinking kind, not your face:) We’d love to see mug inspired jewelry, mug depictions and mug mats or coasters, and any drinking related items. If the work is a donation you will receive an in-kind tax receipt. To submit your work fill out this form and drop off/mail in your work by November 15th.
Not an artist or unable to contribute an item? Not a problem! You can make a cash donation to heat our space or better still, if you are in town, why not plan to attend December 6th @ 7pm at the Craft Council of BC to secure one of those mug inspired items?!
