Yate Week One

'When delightful rain falls always use the amazing umbrella'....

A useful piece of advice indeed! How else to begin our very first session than to share a nice cup of tea? We sampled tea from around the world, swapped stories about our Nanna's china and created tongue in cheek, sanguine and sublime sayings to put on  the tags of tea bags using our random text generator.

We think we could be employed by a certain herbal tea company with our efforts! Our instructions for making the perfect cuppa turned into 'How to Make Tea Mindfully' which became a beautiful reflection on being thankful for the small things.
We shared a sensory experience of smell, touch and taste which moved our work in unexpected directions making it a fabulous first day. The participants gave so much energy and enthusiasm to the sessions, and the work naturally meandered on exciting tangents. We have so much material already from our first day. I can't wait to see where our process takes us!
