Sculptors Workshop, a non-profit arts organization, will continue its 50th anniversary celebration during a Nov. 17-18
open house and biannual sale at the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Dayton St., rooms 210 and 211.
The event will run from 1-8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 17 and on Saturday, Nov. 18 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
“We wanted to do something extra special this year as part of our anniversary celebration,” Sculptors Workshop Pottery Director Julie Perrine said. “Washington Kids in Transition is an organization with a passion for helping local homeless students and, unfortunately, when I spoke to their director the other day, she told me the number of homeless students in the Edmonds School district has increased. We wanted to do something to help.”
Earlier this year, Sculptors Workshop members and guests created textured dishes with the intention of selling them to raise money for Washington Kids in Transition. Look for the special display at the sale where 100 percent of proceeds will be donated to Washington Kids in Transition.
Sculptors Workshop was incorporated in 1967. The group has been located at the Frances Anderson Center since 1981. Janet Still, director of the sculptors of room 211, offers classes in sculpture and hand building. The potters of room 210 are a group of advanced potters and sculptors that work together as a co-op under the direction of Julie Perrine.
