This 7 – 9 October the Islington Chinese Association (ICA) welcomes all tea lovers to its TEA CULTURE FESTIVAL.  The festival will feature a presentation on Chinese teapots as well as a 2-day participative art project.

Join us on Sunday 7 October in north London for a one-off event IN PRAISE OF THE PURPLE CLAY TEAPOT.  The presentation will be given by the award winning ceramicist Shi Yue (石越) from Yixing, Jiangsu province, China’s renowned city of purple clay pottery.  There will be a collection of teapots for the audience to handle and appreciate.

ICA wishes to raise the awareness of Chinese teapots amongst those interested in contemporary Chinese culture, ceramics practitioners, those who socialise in Chinese circles and those wishing to add another arrow to their conversational bow.

The illustrated talk will cover:

  • A brief history of the Chinese teapot – from the functional to the decorative to the artistic
  • What to look for in choosing a teapot – aesthetics, its efficiency in brewing/pouring, the quality of clay, porous qualities, marks of craftsmanship
  • Brief demo of working from wet clay
  • The significance of the ‘hand-made’ and hand-finished.  How does it work in mass production?
  • Shi Yue’s personal outlook for the purple clay product – is clay a finite resource?  How the industry has adapted to popular Chinese tea culture and his hopes for the future of the purple clay teapot

This is a fairly weighty event, to be conducted at a leisurely pace, and is envisaged to take 2-3 hours on the Sunday afternoon.   Click here to book your tickets.

Join us in Archway to discover the joy of Chinese tea culture.   The same venue also hosts ART INFUSION our free taster workshops.
