Workshop and Introduction to Tea Ceremony at the Japan Society

Updated: Mar 13

Event Date: February 26, 2020



約60名が一度にお茶を点てる初めての試みだったが、準備に時間をかけ、大成功を収めた。


60セットの数茶碗、日本奈良高山の茶筅、茶杓、茶巾を準備し、そのほかお茶碗を置く位置を示したレイアウト図を各テーブルに設置。


支部の講師が各テーブル6人ずつを受け持ち、茶筅通し、お茶碗を温めて、お茶を点て、客のマナーで喫し、茶碗と茶筅をすすいで元の位置に戻すーまで体験してもらった。


レクチャーから始まり、実際の点前を見た後、自分たちが道具の準備、道具を清める、茶筅の振り方、お茶、お湯の量など、たくさん学べて楽しかったと良いFeedbackをたくさんいただいた。


恒例のQ&Aでは、たくさんの参加者から質問があり、大変有意義なワークショップとなった。


好奇心の強いニューヨーカーへは、今後こういった自分が実際体験できるワークショップも定期的にすると良いと感じた。



It was the first attempt by about 60 people to make tea at once on their own. It seems it was quite successful.

It took a long time to prepare for 60 sets of tea bowls, chasen, tea scoops, and chakin from Nara Takayama.

We placed a layout drawing on paper for each participant, showing the position where everything should be set.

Each instructor of the Tobu -shibu was in charge of 6 people at each table.


The participants warmed the tea whisk and the bowls, made the tea, and learned how to drink the tea, then rinsed the bowl and the tea whisk and returned all to the original position.


Starting with the lecture, watching the tea demonstration, and workshops, we had a lot of good feedback that the participants all had a lot of fun. They enjoyed learning about preparing the tools, cleaning the tools, how to shake the tea whisk, the amount of tea and hot water.


For Q & A, many participants asked questions, and the workshop was very meaningful.


For the curious New Yorkers, I feel that it would be a good idea to regularly hold these workshops so that people could more experience tea in the future.
