Only 19 days to go.... Old Men somehow have taken over this exhibition.... they and their cups of tea.
Here is one of them and he has become the " pin up boy" , appearing on the gallery invitation and media release.
There once was a man from Vienna
Who lived on a tincture of senna
When that did not agree
He drank camomile tea
That nasty old man from Vienna. ( Edward Lear)

|Rose Keemun, Masala Chai, Lady Grey - art dolls.|
All the fabrics are either tea dyed, overdyed with tea, or dipped in tea.
Rose Keemun tea is Keemun black tea with rose petals - a lovely delicate blend .
Masala Chai is black tea brewed with a mixture of Indian spices and herbs - green cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks, ground cloves, ground ginger and black peppercorn.
Lady Grey is a tea scented with oil of bergamot, with hints of lemon peel and orange peel oil. It is a very "young" tea, first being produced for the Scandanavian market by Twinings in 1994.
