Virtual Christmas Tea Party with Jane Pettigrew
Wed 8 Dec, 17:00 - 19:00 (GMT)
Join Jane for a virtual tea party - anyone can attend, no prior UKTA qualifications /course attendance necessary.
We highly recommend joining this session for those who have taken any of the four History & Etiquette of Afternoon Tea webinar modules.
The Virtual Tea Party is intended to give anyone who has attended Jane’s live Webinars on The History and Etiquette of Afternoon Tea, or anyone else who is interested, an understanding of how a tea party happens in a real situation.
For this December Tea Party, Jane will have ready a selection of seasonal festive Christmas foods to discuss. She will also have her pot of tea, chosen to pair well with the winter foods, and all the other traditional tea wares ready on the table. She will position her computer so that those attending can see exactly how she has set the table and arranged the food; how she pours the tea; holds her cup; how she uses her small tea knife to eat the scones; and how she uses the small pastry fork to eat the pastries. She will talk in detail about every stage of the experience and take questions after each section of the tea party.
The conversation will include a discussion of different festive foods around the world and there will be an opportunity for you to talk about seasonal teatime treats where you are from.
This will be a fun but also instructional experience.
What will I need?
1. Your phone, computer or tablet to join the webinar via Zoom
2. Optional: prepare yourself some tea and Christmas snacks to enjoy during the party
