MUMO’s partnership with ArtsEkta continues. Participants made these beautiful soy candles in tea cups and really enjoyed the activity. They also wrote lovely verses about what tea means to them. The project will continue with online activities until current restrictions are eased.
This project will explore:
- The origins of tea
- Connections with India and China
- The history of how and when tea arrived in Northern Ireland
- The story of tea suppliers – both past and present
- Social connections – such as stories of Belfast dockers and tearooms
