Japanese Tea Ceremony

August 5, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Experience a demonstration of tea ceremony and technique

Experience a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony with tea expert Geeta Harmon. Geeta runs bespoke workshops with The Rabbit Studio, Brisbane. At Artspace Mackay, she will demonstrate the history and principles of Chado – the ‘Way of Tea’. Participants will be served a ‘seasonal tea sweet’ followed by a ceremonial grade Matcha Tea, learn to whisk Matcha the traditional way, and discover practical methods for preparing Matcha at home. Geeta will also guide participants through a simple meditation that may be used on a daily basis. Held during the final weekend of Artspace’s 20th Birthday Exhibition Fire and Ash: Woodfire Pottery of Arthur and Carol Rosser, this unique demonstration will inspire you to relax and bring the nourishing, calming ritual into your daily life!
