School Auctions

Soup to Nuts: How to Make School Auction Pottery

It’s that time of year for school auctions. Finger print pottery is a great way to net your school a lot of money. Parents love anything their kids create and bright, hand-painted pottery can help fund important programs. Let us show you how it works at Clay Cafe Studios.

Step 1: Pick Out Your Pottery

Platters, large bowls and vases are popular items for auctions. Fingerprints are a great way for an entire class to contribute their talent. We have lots of ideas and would be happy to help you decide on a design that will get the bidding going at your school auction.

Step 2: Take Pottery to School for Kids to Paint

We will loan you several colors of paint and help you plan your project. You take the pottery and paint to your school and complete the project with the kids.

Step 3: We Do Finishing Details

Once you bring the piece back to our studio, we would be happy to do the finishing details, including any writing you would like. We will glaze and fire it in our kiln.

Step 4: Pick Up Your Finished Masterpiece

Your pottery will be ready for pick-up in one week.
