We are proud to host local ceramics artist and tea scholar Richard Brandt for this very special class on the Chinese Tea Ceremony known as Gong Fu Cha.  Richard will explain how to use the various teaware and implements associated with Gong Fu Cha as well as prepare tea in this fashion for the attendees to enjoy. Expect a fun and interactive class that will demystify this traditional tea brewing method.

Richard Brandt is a ceramics teacher at Portland Community College and has been working with clay and studying tea culture for more than 20 years.
