IN YOUR HANDS – Fruit Route Performative Wild Tea And Scones Tasseography Installation –

IN YOUR HANDS – members of the public, students, staff were invited by artist activists Anne-Marie Culhane and Paul Conneally to join them in the Fruit Route Orchard at Loughborough University for wild tea, scones, jam, clotted cream and tasseography – reading the tea leaves!

The IN YOUR HANDS installation saw a constant stream of people of all ages, nationalities, and gender sitting down with others to drink, share stories and see what they could in the tea leaves left in the bottom of their tea bowls. The visitors were served and guided by the artists who encouraged them to slow down and consider ‘this moment and place now’ as they engaged with the artist led process of eating scones, drinking tea and the ritual of ‘reading the leaves’.
