Over the coming six weeks, Crafts on Peel will present a series of traditional tea appreciation ceremonies. Designed to create moments of mindfulness and calmness within your daily routine, the ninety-minute sessions will take place through November and December 2020.
Extending themes explored in Crafts on Peel’s current exhibition, ”Imagine the Impossibilities: Bamboo,” Crafts on Peel’s series of tea appreciation ceremonies, ”The Pursuit of Elegance: Rituals of Song Dynasty,” has been carefully designed to infuse the ritual of traditional tea appreciation into contemporary living. Each session will be hosted by a certified tea master who will introduce participants to Chinese tea culture and serving etiquettes through demonstration and accompanying discussion.
Participants will be served two types of Chinese tea from specially selected teaware that responds to the leading characteristics of the tea in each unique ceremony. With access to Crafts on Peel’s collection of teaware and specialist knowledge, participants will be able to assimilate the purity and elegance embedded within the cultural heritage of the traditional tea appreciation ceremony.
