Since our last Bottles of Hope workshop was sooo popular at Ferguson library we are moving it to a Saturday so more folks can attend it!
This is a free workshop we use polymer clay to cover glass bottles to give to Chemo therapy
patients. you get one bottles to keep and you can make more bottles to donate.
Here is all the information for this event as well as a link to the Guild’s Bottles of Hope page.
I hope to see you there!
That is my only resolution for this year! I would like to fill people’s heart’s with hope and love. These little Bottles of Hope are the tool to achieve this.
This simple but elegant bottle in a Faux Wedgewood look only takes about 10mins to make but the impact it will have on a cancer patient that might be having a particularly rough day of chemo is HUGE!
Lets flood the polymer clay websites with EVERYONE’s Bottles of Hope. See Diane’s inspiring story of how she started Bottles of Hope in 1999.
Really all it took was blending the peach from the earth tones collection and the Blue( F and F) on the Makin’s Clay mixing ruler and then roll out the sheet to cover the bottle and then I press some white clay into the Florals mold, and then adhere to the bottle.
As we all rush around this holiday season being “oh sooo BUSY” lets take a moment to remember that some folks will be spending the holiday in a hospital or in hospice, while their family members and friends are praying for a Christmas Miracle.
These are just the current Bottles of Hope that will be brought to the local hospital to be given to the nurses who work on the Chemo ward. What are Bottles of Hope ? Well as Marie Segal said in this interview “There is a little bit a magic that people put inside these bottles”
I’m so honored to be a part of this type of creative community and the fact that the nurses give these bottles to patients just when they may need that little bit of lift me up after a trying day it adds to the love and magic that each bottle contains.
Please to all my polymer clay creative friends just take a few minutes even use your scrap clay from a current project to make a Bottle of Hope to give to the hospitals at this time of year.
