On February 27th our beloved Chili Bowl Fest Fundraiser returned as a fully online bowl sale! For over two decades, this event has been a celebration of ceramics and community and has become a staple of Rosendale’s public festival schedule. To continue in this tradition while adhering to New York State’s health guidelines around the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival was transformed into a one-day virtual sale of handmade ceramics!

Starting at 10 AM EST, over 200 beautiful bowls hand-crafted by local artists, WSW staff and interns, resident artists, students, and volunteers were made available for immediate purchase. Because so many hands contribute to this process, each vessel is one-of-a-kind, and widely varied in shape, size, color, decoration, and, of course, price-point. Guests always have a blast looking for the perfect piece.

Each bowl will be double-boxed, carefully packaged with recyclable materials, and mailed directly to your door for ultimate safety and ease. All proceeds from the Chili Bowl Fest support artistic programming at WSW!
