‘Partaking of the Tea’ Mosaic

Influenced by the Japanese philosophy of Kintsugi (‘treating breakage and repair as art of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise’), we created this fabulous mosaic at our recent ‘Partaking of the Tea’ wellbeing day.

A fabulous group of women used crocks dredged from the Newport estuary and the wedding China of a couple celebrating their diamond anniversary to create this tea-themed mosaic.

A permanent reminder of a day spent in meditation and celebration of Welsh and Japanese heritage.

Women’s Wellbeing Day

An incredible day of spent with inspiring women brought together over tea. A day of looking both inwards and outwards in the spirit of solidarity and shared experience; spanning the world via Welsh and Asian heritage.

A huge thank you to Sonia, Fusae, Claire and everyone who joined us. Thank you too Arwain Sir Benfro 2020 PLANED and Heritage Lottery Fund for your support in helping us to use heritage to enrich the lives of people in our community.
