BRIGHTEN UP THE DOG DAYS OF AUGUST
and benefit the Nassau Humane Society.
August is here, and it’s especially important to give our pets plenty of shade and water to prevent dehydration.
But instead of using boring store-bought bowls, why not treat your furry friend to a ceramic bowl, decorated especially by you?
Join your pet-loving pals for the “Dog Days of August” paint-your-own pottery event on Sunday, Aug. 26 from Noon-5pm at Clay Times Art Center ("CTAC" at 112 S. 3rd St. in Fernandina Beach). This event will not only let you create unique, personalized dinnerware for your special four-pawed-friends, it will also benefit the Nassau Humane Society (NHS) with a donation of $30 from each $45 registration fee received per participant!
Cat lovers are invited to paint feline bowls from Noon-2pm; dog owners are invited to decorate from 3-5 pm, or you are welcome to paint at any time between noon and 5 pm (please allow 2 hours to complete your project).
Even if you don’t have a pet, you may sign up to decorate one or more bowls, then donate them to the NHS for use at the animal shelter.
On painting day, simply bring your positive attitude and creative ideas for decorating. CTAC will provide all materials, including several different types of ceramic pet bowl styles plus a wide variety of glaze colors and sample designs to help you decorate. (And if you prefer to decorate something other than a pet bowl, we've got paw-print mugs and doggie banks, too!)
After kiln firing of the projects is complete, you’ll be notified with a time for pick-up at the NHS Dog Park, where participants can admire each others’ bowls and compare notes!
To guarantee your reservation, please click here now to register online, and be sure to mark your calendar for Aug. 26! Groups of 3 or more who register in advance will save $5 per individual.
You may also register by phone at 904-624-5824 or in person at Clay Times Art Center between 11 am-5 pm Tues.-Sat. More information may be found at the NHS Dog Park, or the NHS charity shop.
We look forward to seeing you and all of your pet-loving pals on August 26!
