On April 13th, Women’s Studio Workshop’s beloved Chili Bowl Fest Fundraiser returns–and for the first time since 2020, each ceramic purchase will come with a free serving of chili! For over a quarter century, guests have enjoyed this celebration of community and ceramics–shopping from over 1,000 handmade bowls, mugs, and tumblers, with all of the proceeds of the sale going to support WSW’s artistic programming. This year, we will be hosting both an online and in-person sale!

The In-Person Sale will take place from 2-7PM at Women’s Studio Workshop! We are so happy to see Chili Bowl return home to 722 Binnewater Lane in Rosendale after years of being held at other locations.

2-4PM: Early admission $10

4-7PM: Free!

Live music all day from The Library Band! Overflow parking is available at the Rail Trail parking lot on Binnewater Rd, and there will be a shuttle from that parking lot to our campus. See you there!

The Online Sale will open at 10AM on April 13th. In addition to over 200 handmade bowls for sale, we will be raffling off work! Each piece will be double-boxed, carefully packaged with recyclable materials, and mailed directly to your door for ultimate safety and ease. Be sure to bookmark the page and set your alarms, because these bowls will sell out fast!
