Next week we will be holding two events at the shop with the theme ‘Made by Hand’, showcasing handmade utensils by three Japanese craftsmen. Toru Tsuji of Kanaami-Tsuji and Takahiro Yagi of Kaikado will be at the shop in person demonstrating how they make their handwoven tea strainers and handmade tea caddies respectively. We will also have hand carved wooden trays and platters by Shuji Nakagawa of Mokkougei.
As an extra special treat we will be serving delicious handmade wagashi sweets by Athico Ilye alongside our teas.
The events are on Thursday 15th September 5-8pm, and Saturday 17th September 2-5pm. Both are completely free and there is no need to RSVP, just drop in any time.
