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.
