This flower arrangement workshop teaches a specific style related to Chinese tea culture, which is called Tea ceremony Flower (茶花).
Tea ceremony Flower attempts to convey or represent a scene within nature. It is meant to convey or be in keeping with the natural flavour of the tea(s) that will be used in a tea ceremony setting. The arrangement is meant to add a visual enhancement to the flavours that will be experienced, but also should suggest seasonality and the theme of the event.
During this workshop you learn basic flower arrangement techniques to create an oriental aesthetic and style using two different vessels (like a vase for example). The workshop include making a vessel of your own out of bamboo.
Apart from the basic cut flowers we will provide for the workshop, you will also gather materials from our garden and the nearby woodland walk. We hope this experience will give you a different perspective and open you up to new possibilities on the materials you can use in flower arrangements.
Each participant will create two distinct styles of flower arrangements, used to decorate tea ceremony settings. The workshop also includes a tea tasting and some refreshments. The tea tasting we hope will be an opportunity to learn more about tea culture and where you can hopefully better appreciate the end results of your flower arrangements.
Space is very limited, so ZIYO can only cater for small groups.
All the materials are included as well as tea and refreshments.
