Westerners have long been fascinated by the Japanese Tea Ceremony. In Japan, the act of drinking tea is more than an elaborate ritual. It is an interlude which leads to the spirit of beauty, quietude and politeness toward others. In this three-session workshop, students craft their personal tea bowls from clay and decorate with colorful glazes. The experience culminates with the students celebrating the Tea Ceremony using their own tea bowls. Includes video support materials exploring Japanese art and culture.
