I have a new class that I will be offering this spring
In this 10 week class, students will learn the first procedure, Ryakubon. It is a complete tea ceremony with all the essential elements, but you can do it without a lot of equipment or tea room. I have shared tea this way for public presentations, and also while hiking, in the living room, on the train, in my hotel room while traveling and under the cherry blossoms. Students will also deepen their understanding of the guest role, learn to make a couple of different types of sweets, and learn basic preparation and set up of the tea room. We will begin to explore seasonal aspects of the tea ceremony, and at the end, put on a tea gathering for friends and family. Come join us for this class.
When: Starts Saturday, April 28th, 3:00-5:00 pm and goes for 10 weeks, Fee is $250
Where: Issoan Tea Room, 17761 NW Marylhurst Ct., Portland, OR 97229
