In partnership with One Million Bones and Students Rebuild, the Shelburne Craft School and Shelburne resident and Shelburne Pond Studios artist Robyn Woodworth will host a bone-making event on April 6 at Shelburne Craft School, 64 Harbor Road in Shelburne. This event is open to the general public. Drop in any time Saturday, April 6 from noon to 3 pm. The bone-crafting will begin at 12 pm.

One Million Bones is a social arts practice working to raise awareness about the atrocities happening today in Sudan, Burma, Somalia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo through the creation of one million handmade bones crafted by artists, activists, and students. These handcrafted bones will be laid on the National Mall in Washington D.C. on June 8. Beyond raising global awareness, each handmade bone will generate a $1 donation through Students Rebuild for CARE’s humanitarian relief and rebuilding work in Central Africa – up to $500,000 – from the Bezos Family Foundation.
