Class info:  Experience the Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony
(Instructor: Dewey Meyer)
Saturday, October 5, 11 am – Noon

Large Workshop Booth - ($10 materials fee for brewing participants – 10 brewing spaces available)
Up to 25 additional non-brewing participants

Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony was created in Taiwan in the 1980′s as an experience that allows many participants to brew and serve tea together. It is rooted in Chinese Gong-Fu small pot brewing. Wu-Wo translates to “selfless” and embodies that principle. Participants sit in a circle and silently brew, being present with tea, nature and each other. Those that you serve are not the ones you receive from, reinforcing the concept of giving without expectations.

Please join us! No need to bring anything. We will provide 10 brewing kits. 10 people who pay a $10 materials fee will be able to use these kits and be an active brewing participant in the ceremony. All participants, including non-brewers (which can attend at no fee), will be able to taste tea during the ceremony.
