WAGASHI – The Art of Japanese Tea Sweets
Our February Elements of Tea will focus on wagashi, the art of Japanese tea sweets, where the heart of Japanese art is observed in the relationship of culinary and aesthetic considerations.
The program explores seasonal tea sweets, paired with images of Japanese art, highlighting the distinctive place that wagashi occupies in Japanese cultural contexts as well as in the enduring practice of Japanese tea ceremony.
We are honored to have Marybeth Welch, licensed instructor of Urasenke Tea and seasoned artist of wagashi traditions, as our guest speaker, leading this presentation and conversation.
ONLINE, free with registration.
