This project has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Sasakawa Foundation and the Japan Society and celebrates the creative heart of two very different cultures – the UK and Japan – who have one thing very much in common – tea! It uses the traditions of British afternoon tea and the Japanese tea ceremony to create workshop settings where people in the UK can learn about Japanese culture in a creative way and be inspired to make their own haiku inscribed ceramic tea bowls and poetic objets d’art.These are showcased at a final CreativiTEA party to which the whole community is invited and those attending can also take a sip of creativiTEA and be amazed at what they create –including songs, edible poetry and PinARTas full of handmade art sweets.
