The Carrabelle Artist Association is hosting their annual Fish Rubbing Event on Saturday, February 17, 2024, at the Carrabelle Senior Center at 201 NW Avenue F, Carrabelle, FL. The Fish Rubbing Event includes a fun, hands-on session where participants will make their own nautical art to take home. This event will feature an Asian theme, with international food and music.

Materials and personal 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 on fabric may bring a T-shirt, apron, tea towel, or another fabric item to make a second fish rubbing.
There will be two sessions available – 10AM-12PM or 1-3 PM with tickets pre-sold for each session. Reservations are recommended.
