The Carrabelle Artist Association is hosting their annual Fish Rubbing event on Saturday, February 4, 2023, at the St. James Bay Golf Resort in the Fountain Room at 160 Laughing Gull Lane, Carrabelle, FL. The 2023 Fish Rubbing event is open to the public and provides a fun, hands-on session where participants will make their own piece of unique, nautical art to take home. This event will feature an Asian theme and will also include food and music.

Gyotaku (pronounced Gee-oh-tak-oo) or the art of fish rubbing is a traditional form of Japanese art. Fish rubbing is a form of printing on rice paper using local fish. Materials and in-person instruction are provided for guests to make a frame-able piece of fish rubbing art to take home. Anyone who would like to make an additional fish rubbing may bring a t-shirt, apron, tea towel, or other cloth item to make a second fish rubbing. The fish rubbing will be done with acrylic paint.

There will be two sessions available – 10 am-12pm and 1-3 pm – with tickets presold for each session. Cost is $15 in advance or $18 at the door. All proceeds go to support the Carrabelle Artist Association. All are welcome. Tickets are available at the Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce or at St. James Bay Golf Resort Pro Shop. For tickets or more information, call or text Marian Morris at 850-294-9664 or email her at morrispottery@gmail.com.
