Salcombe Brewery Co. is delighted to announce that they are re-launching their hugely popular brewery tours and look forward to sharing their knowledge and award-winning beer with visitors from far and wide. Brewery tour bookings and vouchers cost £20 and can be purchased from the Visit Us section of their website. Head Brewer, Sam Beaman, comments: “Brewery tours have always been a highlight for us. We love nothing better than showing visitors around our site, sharing our brewing expertise and giving them an insight into our beers at an extended tasting session. Covid restrictions have meant that we have not been able to run these regularly for nearly two years. We are thrilled that we are now able to re-launch these tours and welcome visitors back.” The ninety minute brewery tours will take place from April 2022 and start with a welcome drink in the taproom. This is followed by a tour of the brewhouse and the chance to grill the experts on any beer-related topics. The tour ends in the taproom, where visitors will enjoy a flight of Salcombe beers. Brewery tours cost £20 and can be bought online at www.salcombebrewery.com. Brewery tour vouchers can also be purchased for £20. These are valid for one year and can be used to book tours within that period. All brewery tours must be booked in advance.

In Unity: An Approach To Making Japanese Tea Bowls

On this one day ceramic course we will be using hand building techniques to make two beautiful tea bowls. We will be exploring surface decoration and use texture, slips and underglaze to create original and functional pieces. The cost of the course includes all materials as well as the cost of slip decoration firing and glazing two of your pots. Pots can be collected or posted to you after you’ve finished the course. Japanese lunch and refreshments are included. The tea ceremony became highly developed in the 16th century and at its centre was the iconic tea bowl. Many forms have developed in different pottery-making areas, according to the tastes of different potters and tea masters. The essence of the tea bowl lies with an intimate form which can be cradled in both hands whilst drinking the thick green tea, an object of contemplation which brings one closer to nature and a state of contemplation. This course invites you to look at the basic form and it’s use, then interpret it creatively, drawing on imagery from the natural world and your own imagination. What is a Japanese tea bowl? In the 7th century Buddhist priests brought tea plants from China to Japan. Tea was cultivated in temple gardens and drunk by priests because it was regarded as medicinal and as an aid to keep awake during long hours of meditation. Tea drinking became very popular in the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1568-1600) with the nobility, samurai and the ruling class. Shogun Hideyoshi Toyotomi was a warrior who also practiced tea and had two very influential tea masters, Sen no Rikyu and Furuta Oribe. These tea masters created new forms of tea, tea utensils and food, but especially tea bowls which were commissioned from potters. The tea ceremony has continued in popularity to the present day. In busy, stressful modern life the tea room is a place of peace and contemplation. The tea master or mistress serves carefully prepared tea to guests whilst engaging in conversations about life. The focus is on the tea bowl which is at the centre of the ceremony and may be very old or a work of art by a famous potter and the tea master will have much knowledge about the implements used. Many Japanese potters make tea bowls in various styles, it is considered one of the most challenging things to make. But tea masters have also used everyday items such as Korean rice bowls for serving tea, so there is much flexibility.
