Raising our glasses to raise money for a good cause!


As part of our AMERICAN CRAFT WEEK Celebration, indigenous is hosting a fundraiser for Empty Bowls, a charity near and dear to our hearts (yay! pottery!).


The money raised from our American Craft Week Raffle will go to Empty Bowls, an organization working locally to help end hunger and food insecurity.  We asked each of our participating American Craft Week artists to donate a piece of their work to be raffled off at the end of our celebration. Each artist generously came through!


Empty Bowls, presented by the Clay AllianceThe donated items are showcased at our counter, & you can purchase a raffle ticket for a chance to win each artwork. The more raffle tickets you purchase the greater your chances are to win and the more money we raise for Empty Bowls.


Details of the Raffle: commonly known as a "chance auction" or "penny social"; customers buy tickets, then place the ticket into the box that corresponds to the desired work of art. At the close of the celebration, the winning ticket for each item will then be drawn from the corresponding box. Obviously, the more tickets a person deposits into a specific box, the higher the chance that they'll win that wonderful work.


Raffle tickets are $1.00 donation each.

Buy as many as you like and place each in whichever artwork you'd like to win~ "all in one or one in all".
