What have sewage and food growing got in common? In response to the reinvention of this derelict industrial site into a social, growing and wildlife hub for the local area; artists Alex and Hannah will be work with local people to investigate the sites history through the different ‘cycles’ which continue to take place here, such as the re-cycling of water, nutrients and land. Creative workshops will involve practical processes from planting to ceramics, kiln firing to tea brewing. This explorative project will culminate in a big public Tea Ceremony event in late summer, bringing people together to share the research and a taste from the site.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Dis-taste - An alternative tea ceremony of water, soil and waste are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
