Continuing Tea Lessons for Chanoyu Study
The Way of Tea is best savored by those who study tea preparation. Lessons emphasize the role of the guests as well as the host. You must be a member of the Urasenke Tea Ceremony Society to attend lessons. There is a sign up list for lessons. You must contact the Center to select the time appropriate that is convenient for your schedule and we will inform you when the classes have openings available. After you indicate your interest in a specific lesson time, there may be a waiting time for openings at the specific time chosen due to a limited number of spaces available.
