Beginner Lessons at Shofuso

  

Have you ever wanted to learn Japanese tea ceremony? Our beginner classes at Shofuso, the Japanese House in Fairmount Park, offer you a taste of the world of chanoyu. Each small-group class offers individualized, hands-on instruction in tea ceremony, with an emphasis on movement skills, understanding aesthetics, and host-guest interaction. The initial $100 fee covers four weekly lessons (they need not be taken consecutively, although for best results we recommend you come as often as possible). Sign up for September classes here.

Otsukimi Moon-Viewing Tea

  

This annual gathering celebrates the beauty of the full moon in the fall. Held on the veranda at Shofuso, we’ll share tea and sweets and (weather permitting!) watch the moon rise. Please note that this is not a demonstration; some knowledge of tea ceremony etiquette is assumed. For those new to tea ceremony, we recommend one of our public demonstrations. Location: Shofuso. Requested donation: $25 per person. Please RSVP to ensure that we are prepared for the right number of guests.  

7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
