Well, with less than 50 days until the Man burns, production is just getting underway on the Get Found SyncroniciTEA House and JuJu Parlor. What? You haven't heard about his yet?!! Well, let me fill you in.
The centerpiece of this year's Camp Get Found will be a beautiful and welcoming tea house and ju ju parlor. It will be a place for all things creative, reverent and irreverent! We shall be serving thirsty city dwellers a plethora of different teas - each accompanied by it's own unique ritual. Among our tribe are tea connoisseurs of many styles. We currently awaiting a shipment of the finest oolong from a secret source in Taiwan. We also have an insider relationship with Zen Dog, a local Seattle tea master and importer. We will also be serving up chai teas, special blended herbal teas, medicinal teas and more! You will be able to sip your tea in the comfort and sereniTEA of the SyncroniciTEA house.
The tea house will be an octagonal space that is about 365 square feet. It will be capped with a easy to spot, baby blue parachute and protected from the wind by white tarpaulin walls. The tea house design is based on the tried and true shade structure design that dBM has used every year on the playa. The parachute will be supported by a center mast and pulled out over the guy wires that are used to hold it upright. The walls will be supported by posts that are sunk into the play and layed out in an octagonal shape.
The teahouse interior will be beautifully created by the "vibesquad" - a crew of divine ladies from our tribe who have a vision for a sacred and restful space that will encourage connection, reflection, cuddle puddles and ritual. Picture plush carpets, massive piles of cozy pillows, low tables, exquisite art, lanterns, draping fabric in reds and golds, red LED lighting and of course MUSIC! Live music from one of our many tribal troubadours and your favorite dBM casts spinning throughout the day and night. This is the place you want to be!
The garage here at Cottage Groove is beginning to pile of with materials: cables, ratchet straps, rebar, parachutes, rolls of tarp and carpet, rope, posts..... The build is not far out now, just a few more items to go. The mast heads to the welders to be fabricated within the next week and then it's on! Stay tuned for more updates on the build.
We hope to be able to serve you.
