Ben’s Bells Newtown at Brookfield Library

Ben's Bells Ben’s Bells Newtown is coming to The Brookfield Library on April 29 from noon to 2:00 p.m.  Join them to make bells and help spread kindness!

What are Ben’s Bells?  Their mission is “to inspire, educate and motivate each other to realize the impact of intentional kindness and to empower individuals to act according to that awareness, thereby strengthening ourselves, our relationships and our communities.”  You can find more information, including a history of the project, at

Nationally renowned, Ben’s Bells are brightly colored ceramic works of art that are randomly hung in public places that bear a tag instructing the person who finds the bell to take it home and to remember to be kind.  It takes 10 different hands to make a single Ben’s Bells so, this truly is a community project!  Participants attending this workshop will have the opportunity to enjoy two steps of the bell making process.  First, you will form beads with clay and then you will have the opportunity to paint beads.  The bells you make will eventually be distributed throughout the area to fulfill their purpose of spreading kindness, one interaction at a time. 
This program is appropriate for all ages but younger participants do require assistance from an adult.  You don’t need to be a Brookfield resident to participate.  Ben’s Bells Newtown relies solely on donations so, don’t forget to bring a bring few bucks for our donation jar!  Reservations for this session are REQUIRED as space is limited.  Please register online at


Say hello anytime.
