Register by location to attend the event – location list and to register here http://www.infusion-art.org/gdmoh.
There is a $5 registration fee to hold your seat that will be donated to a charitable organization selected by the location you are attending.
Arrive to the location at 6 pm on Tuesday, August 27th. All supplies are provided along with instruction – but the creativity is up to you! Every mug will be cohesive with a Greater Dayton Mugs of Hope logo that will be pre-screened. 500 mugs will be painted during this event.
Afterwards, we will fire them in our kilns. The mugs will be food-safe and ready for daily use. To continue the community atmosphere, we will be going to various locations in the Greater Dayton region to pass out the completed mugs, as well as few “grand prize” items such as gift cards from local businesses. Each Mug of Hope will be handed to a complete stranger, so the painter of the mug will not receive their mug back. This concept is intentional. We want the community to feel connected, not by tragedy, but through hope. Write a message on the bottom of you mug and follow us at #DaytonMugsofHope. You, too, can pick up a mug of your own by another Daytonian!
