The Hammond Tea Club, the Ryusuikai, will present digital programs on the fourth Tuesday of the month examining the individual elements of the Chanoyu to understand how they contribute to the ceremony, then in the spring of 2022, we will gather in the Hammond garden to bring the elements together in the celebration of an actual chanoyu.
Walking the Path to Harmony: History, Design and Uses of the Japanese Tea Garden
What defines a Japanese tea garden? How do tea ceremony hosts and their guests enter, experience and travel through the garden on their way to and from the tea house? How have the plantings and layout of tea gardens evolved, and what influence did tea gardens have on the design of the garden at the Hammond Museum?
Join CCNY Asian Studies Professor Lara Netting and tea practitioner Bill Jarvis in a robust presentation and discussion designed to illuminate these and other issues for both newcomers and experienced practitioners.
