School Ideas

The end of the school year arrives and you need a great gift for your child’s teacher.

A unique hand painted mug, plate or bowl made with love and gratitude by the scholar in question will be a perfect gift.

School Ideas from Color Café

Handmade with Love

Pop in some chocolates, wrap up in cellophane, tie with a ribbon and your gift is ready!

Another option: collect funds from the class and purchase a large platter, salad bowl or biscuit barrel. Have all the children in the class finger-paint it with their name, or let each child paint a designated area or colour-in an outlined design. Wrap up the finished item as a gift from the whole class. Another unique and useful handmade gift.

Color Café is fun and educational! Bring the kids to the Café for an outing and have them paint something as part of their arts & crafts lesson. They will learn something about the ceramic process as we can show them the kilns and explain how glazing works to seal and protect the porous clay items.

What about some fund raising ideas? Have all the children paint a tea set, or mugs and coffee pot, and put it up for auction to raise funds for a specific school requirement or class trip.

So many ideas……all around having fun and being creative.

Great service

I would just like to send a message regarding the lady that was assisting at the shop on Friday. She was so helpful and kind towards me and I couldn't have asked for better service! She even assisted me until 17:05 to finish up my teapot because I had to finish it then. She also took my details to let me know if the glazing can be done sooner.
So please could you share my gratitude, it's not often that you find someone willing to go out of their way to give good service and a helping hand at the cost of their own time.
