A tea for all seasons

After you hit a few yard sales or cut the grass tomorrow morning, Saturday April 3, stop by Sacred Grounds Cafe on Main Street in Edwardsville, IL from 10am-12noon for a cup of coffee or tea. Sit a spell and chat while I deconstruct a year's worth of Peter's tea bags for my next art project. The process of opening the staple, pouring out the tea and smoothing the abaca tea bag has a peaceful, rhythmic quality that reminds me of knitting or weaving. When all of the tea bags are opened, washed, dried and pressed, they will be bound into a four book collection, "A Tea for All Seasons." Those who are willing, will be asked to fill out a short survey about their reasons and preferences for drinking tea. A second teabag event is planned for Saturday, April 17 at Main Street Art Gallery in Edwardsville, IL.
