Introduction to Chado: the Way of Japanese Tea – How to Wear a Kimono
Today’s Topic: How to Wear a Kimono. You will be introduced to the vocabulary for kimono accessories, seasonality and patterns, and how to tie men’s and women’s kimono and obi belts. No materials requirements for this class from students. Instructor will supply all the materials for the class. Maximum number of students is 15.
This is the second lecture in a three-part series exploring The Way of Japanese Tea. These classes can stand alone as workshops as well. Students do not need to attend all three lectures although each one explores a different aspect of the Japanese Tea culture. Jennifer Huffman‘s cultural lectures will detail the subtleties behind Japan’s elusive tea culture. This course will encompass Japan and its tea’s historical connotations, etiquette, and the practices relegated to the seasonality of sweets, floral arranging, and importance of utensils and other simple yet vital aspects of the Japanese Tea Ceremony and its impact on Japanese culture.
This event is a three-class series that may continue after the series ends, depending on interest and attendance. If there are specific requirements, they will be listed with the class description.
