Come join us Wabi Sabi Pottery -Hand Formed Tea Bowls (Chawan) Workshop!!
Wabi sabi, the acceptance of transience and imperfection is deeply rooted in Japanese culture and aesthetics. In tea bowls, irregularities and imperfections are prized: they are often featured prominently as the "front" of the bowl. In this workshop, we are going to use the traditional method in pottery to make tea bowls. Come to experience wabi sabi, and make your own tea bowls.
Your instructor Ping Wei will demonstrate the process of making pinched bowls first. You will have enough time to make a tea cup and a tea bowl. All materials are included. After the workshop, Ping Wei will have your pieces fired and ready for you to pick up in three weeks.
