Summertime High Tea

Normally you would enjoy an appetizing selection of tea themed snacks in a lovely setting, and take home a handmade plate & cup. 

In 2020, we are making some changes, due to COVID-19

Proceeds benefit The Clay Studio of Missoula’s artists-in-residence.

Summertime High Tea 2020

Online Event to take place in Late August
Stay tuned for details!

Proceeds from this event benefit professional development opportunities for our long term artists-in-residence.

This late summer celebration NORMALLY offers an appetizing selection of high tea themed snacks, and scones.  The Clay Studio of Missoula’s talented ceramic artists will provide guests with a handmade cup and plate to take home. Teas by Lake Missoula Tea Company, coffee, and wine are usually served, along with live music accompaniment


Considering holding a high volume gathering in late summer appears highly unadvisable, we've decided to utilize our auction platform to offer auction tea ware auction packages


Package may include:

  • Cup and small plate set

  • Cup and saucer set

  • Tea for two set

  • Any other tea service related items or set configurations (creamer/sugar, teapot, tea tray, cake stand)

  • sculptural items relating to summertime high tea/tea parties

  • vases and centerpieces


Packages will range from approximately $40-$200 per package.

We will be pairing Lake Missoula Tea products with different tea themed sets!


We will sell a set amount of tickets for early admission to the online purchasing, as we will offer most, if not all, packages as "buy it now". Ticket prices and availability will be announced in early August

After 24 hours, the general public can purchase unsold packages.
