Hey Clay People
Let’s get together, get busy And Play too!
Bottle of Hope Extravaganza!
Clay Day Aug 20th 10:00-3:00
Let’s learn how easy it is to create a little hope for those going through difficult times. Come get a helping hand in making a Bottle of Hope. Whether you have made a few or never a one, come and learn how simple it can be to make a gift to spread a little joy to someone in need.
We have invited the volunteers from the Moore’s Cancer Center to join us to make bottles if they would like.
Come join the day of fun and spread some hope to those that could use a little during their trials.
We will have different guild members at each table helping with different techniques. If you would like to help out please let us know.
April 13 2011 Bottle of Hope Workshop
There will be a Bottle of Hope Extravaganza on clay day in August. So plan ahead to attend and bring friends who may want to learn to make the bottles.
I appreciate the time and energy of the gals who helped make this event possible. You are awesome!
The Bottles of Hope Program began in 1999 by Diane Gregoire, a polymer clay artist who had survived breast cancer and a member of the Southern Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild. While sitting for hours during treatments, she noticed all the empty medicine bottles being thrown away and the idea was born.
We take these bottles, all from medications that are non-toxic, such as Heparin or sterile water, clean them, remove the tops and labels, and cover them with polymer clay. We decorate them with designs from flowers to dolls to holiday designs; anything your imagination can come up with.Patients receiving these bottles, and the staff that cares for them, are so touched by the thought behind them that they become cherished tokens of the care of strangers. Some bottles have notes inside them. These notes can be a wish for good health, poems, or inspirational messages. This is an option and not a necessity.
BOH are never sold and are given anonymously. We gain satisfaction of giving to the community and touching the lives of those going through a very tough time in their lives. Please join us in keeping this wonderful program going strong.
