You are invited to the sixth annual EMPTY BOWLS event in conjunction with the Hamilton Petters Guild Fall Sale on November 5th to 7th.

The Empty Bowls Project and Hamilton Food Share are the ongoing recipients of monies raised in one of Hamilton-Wentworth’s most unique fundraising initiatives; the 2009 Fall sale raised $20,420.

Choose a soup bowl from hundreds of handmade bowls, made by many of your favorite local potters. Your $20 will buy a beautiful bowl and allow Hamilton Food Share to source $100 worth of food. Start a bowl collection for yourself, purchase a bowl for a friend, give a bowl to a neighbour, take a bowl as a hostess gift…before you know it you have purchased 5 unique bowls and helped raise $500 worth of food!


The Guild Sale occurs twice a year at the Dundas Lions Memorial Community Centre, 10 Market Street South, Dundas, Ontario (corner of King and Market Streets)

More than 100 potters sell both functional and decorative clayware during the three day sale. Members take in new work daily and there are always numerous potters available to answer your questions.

Be sure to fill out a ballot to win one of three wonderful Door Prizes. Your name will also be added to our mailing and you will receive invitations to our Spring and Fall Sales.

  • More than 10,000 pots on 2 floors and 3 rooms of pottery
