Pickleball is a paddleball sport that combines elements of badminton, table tennis, and tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a ball over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports: the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules somewhat similar to tennis, with several modifications. Pickleball was invented in the mid 1960s as a children's backyard game. ***ALL SKILL LEVELS WELCOME!***

Every year dozens of Alaskan artists create unique art plates for Bunnell’s Plate Project. The bisqued plates are blank “canvases” for brilliant food-safe underglazes. The finished painted plates are then competitively selected by new and renewing members as thanks for their annual support. The Plate Project would not be possible without the time and talent of Homer potters who transform hundreds of pounds of clay into 100+ plates each year. Thank you to 2023’s potters: Ahna Iredale, Jeff Szarzi, David Kaufmann, Ruby Haigh, Maygen Lotscher, Carl Bice, Lisa Wood and Tara Schmidt.
Materials, guidance and good company are guaranteed when you join us in gallery to paint. All plates are due back on April 15th. You can also elect to take a plate (and glazes) home if you prefer. The Plate Project is open to anyone committed to crafting an excellent plate that will raise essential operating support for the mission and programs of Bunnell Street Arts Center at the Annual Plate Project Opening in May.
Volunteers meet every Saturday at Public Works to fill sandbags for the Parks staff to spread on various trails around town to maintain safe pedestrian transportation routes throughout the winter. All equipment and materials provided, as well as coffee and snacks.
