Are You “Gung Ho” about Gong Fu Cha style tea?

The new Creative Neighbours Salon series will be featuring  Sarah Jacobs serving you tea – Gong Fu Cha style — from 6 to 7 pm at the second salon on  Sunday, June 12, 2016. l+printz_eby+office_1

The salons are usually on the 4th Sunday, but since both the 3rd Sunday (Kits Car Free Day Block Parties) and 4th Sunday (Greek Day on Broadway) are big Kits attractions,  the group decided on the second Sunday for June.

From 7 – 8 pm, several of the Artists in Our Midst exhibiting artists who will be opening their studios to the public the following weekend (June 18-19) will be on hand to introduce themselves, their art and their creative process.

For the artists it’s a final social event (even rally!) before their big opening at the Roundhouse on Wednesday, June 15.

For you it’s a way to meet several of the artists all in one place and whet your appetite for seeing and hearing more the following weekend.

Sarah Jacobs, Kits neighbour and tea lover, will be sharing a selection of her favourite rare teas, prepared in the traditional Gong Fu Cha style”.
