Potters in Protest 2020
Piccolina Gelateria teams up with some of Australia's best ceramicists to fight for the planet.
Piccolina Gelateria is ditching its waffle cones and paper cups in favour of beautiful, handmade ceramic bowls at a Collingwood event this Saturday, February 1. And it's doing so to help raise money for the Australian Conservation Foundation — an environmental non-profit currently fighting for clean energy.
The Potters in Protest fundraiser event will be held at Piccolina's Collingwood shop and here's how it works: purchase a handmade ceramic bowl for $30 and it'll be filled — for free — with gelato (vegan options available). It's a fairly simple idea but noble nonetheless, with 100 percent of the profits going towards the cause.
Over 300 bowls will be available, donated by some of Australia's most talented potters, including Mud Australia, Clay by Tina, Oh Hey Grace, Leaf and Thread, Mountain Clay, Clae Studio, Kirsten Perry, Peta Armstrong and many more.
Potters in Protest will run from noon to 3pm, unless sold out prior. We suggest you go early and scoop it out.
