Storm in a Teacup is one of Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery’s major exhibitions for 2015.

On display until September 27, this fascinating exhibition reflects upon tea drinking in Australia.

Introduced by the British colonials, the afternoon tea party was an attempt to ‘civilise’ the land. Tea drinking became so popular in the colonies that by 1888 the amount of tea consumed per capita exceeded the amount consumed in England.

Soon after, billy tea was to become an enduring symbol of the pioneering spirit, immortalised by Henry Lawson’s stories published under the title While the billy boils.

Storm in a Teacup features paintings, works on paper, photographs, ceramics, and sculpture and installation.

Bring the kids along to see the incredible afternoon tea setting with cakes, crockery and even cushions made entirely of icing sugar!

Children will also be captivated by tiny figurines in glass teapots along with portraits of an artist’s grandparents made from coffee stained sugar cubes.

A range of special events accompany the exhibition, including a school holiday pantomime on Saturday September 26 from 10.30am-12.30pm presented by the Flying Bookworm Theatre Company.

After the pantomime children and parents will be guided to the Civic Reserve Recreational Centre to enjoy a supervised 45 minute activity class of bunny hop bounces and tea party tumbles.

Suitable for 5-10 year olds. Children $15, adults $5.
