Event Details

This is the perfect event aiming to blend our rich culture of tea drinking and appreciation of art. Ireland consumes 2.2kg of tea per person each year putting us second in the world for tea consumption per capita! Guest artist Pavithra Kannan will present her tea ceremony workshop ‘A Sip & Beyond’.

Pavithra uses the international practice of drinking tea as a medium for conversations –creating interactions within our community while celebrating the art of conversations. Pavithra - a social engaged artist, living in Tuam, invites you to join her at the Station on Fri 23rd September from 6pm - 7pm. This is a free workshop for anyone who is interested in our cultural consumption of tea & the magic of conversations that unfold while drinking it! Pavithra will share with attendees her own family recipe for Indian Masala Chai - it takes the Irish cuppa to a whole new level!! Pavithra will also guide us through the process & there is even time to make some art with yes you've guessed it tea as a material!! Book your place on this enjoyable workshop here  
The Exhibition

An Artful Brew also presents ‘Curacha’, an exhibition of hand painted traditional Irish curachs by top class professional artists from Kerry to Belfast. Each of the 6 foot currach creations, fabricated in metal & covered in canvas have been hand-painted by a wide variety of artists from some of the best known visual artists in Ireland to exciting emerging talents and people who live in small coastal communities or offshore Gaeltacht islands. These currachs were initially created to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Áras Éanna on Inis Oirr and were on display at the art centre and around the island. We are super excited that a dozen of these unique currachs will be exhibited outdoors at the Station from 6pm - 9pm only on Fri 23rd September.

Culture Night is brought to you by the Arts Council Ireland in partnership with the Galway County Council & Galway County Arts Office.
