Conceived during the Covid-19 Level 4 lockdown and created in partnership with the Ceramics Association of New Zealand and Creative New Zealand, Share a Cuppa is a community event celebrating the ritual of a good cup of tea.
There are three parts to this amazing event, designed to bring us together, promote creative well-being, and support ceramic artisans in Aotearoa:
Share a Cuppa Studio Potters
During lockdown in April, 40 studio potters from all around Aotearoa were commissioned by Share a Cuppa to create four artisan tea cups. Each individual cup is now being packaged into a fabulous tea gift pack of a handmade cup, locally blended tea, an artisan chocolate, and artist designed thank you card. You are invited to nominate someone special to receive one – the perfect way to say thank you to someone deserving.
The gift sets will be available to order on Felt from Friday 28th until Sunday 30th August only. When placing an order, you nominate your person, provide their address, and pay for the postage – the gift set itself is exactly that: a gift.
Stay tuned as we reveal the tea cups over the next fortnight, and visit Share a Cuppa on 28th August to place your order!
Share a Cuppa Make-alongs
Alongside the studio potters, you can craft your own ceramic tea cup at home, following Share a Cuppa tutorials by seven Kiwi ceramic artists. Kit sets for these projects with all the materials you will need are available from General Pottery on Felt – order yours now, and tune in to the tutorial videos on Vimeo.
Share a Cuppa on September 6th!
Sometimes the small things add up to make a difference. Share a little more, care a little more, and create space to allow creativity to support us in positive ways. Take time out to reflect on how we support each other – let’s Share a Cuppa together on September 6th!
