The tea garden or chaniwa, depending on its size, has one or more places of purification, placed at the entrance of the garden and near the teahouse.
The set of elements constituting these ablution basins is called tsukubai and each piece has a specific use.
The basins consist of a large block of stone called chozubachi or mizubachi decorated with a bamboo ladle or tsukubaibishaku.
Water is supplied through a pipe hidden by bamboo or kakehi. The whole is decorated with a rocky setting, surrounded by greenery.
During these three days, you will realize each stage of building. You will learn how to properly define your project.
To do this, you will start by studying and analyzing the available space, its immediate environment, to take measures and achieve two sketches in color
(it is not necessary to have drawing skills), a basic plan and another in three dimensions.
You will choose your materials, the different elements and necessary plants. Finally, you will proceed to build your tsukubai, based on a closed water circuit,
depending on the rules of Omotesenke and Urasenke schools of the Way of tea.
If you choose this course in the frame of energy Hortitherapy - NIWATHERAPY©, this course is associated with the theme :
"The difficulty was never been to forgive others, but to reach to forgive ourselves. Forgive ourselves our errors, our poor choices,
our lack of courage sometimes, to have let others to hurt us and to make believe us that they were right to do so ...
Forgiving yourself, it is giving back to each his part - we are always co-creators - and accepting to see others as they are.
This course will really be felt as a complete wholeness."
