about Teh Studio
Teh – the word for “tea” in Malay & Hokkien.
Teh is an interdisciplinary production studio brewing creative collaborations and dialogues in quiet and evocative ways.
With a topical interest in the creative arts, and a particular love for modern-day artisans who practice a spirit of slowness and stillness in their craft, Teh hopes to explore (em)bodied processes of artmaking through meaningful conversation, material objects and communal experiences.

︎Right Relations ︎
Teh Studio and San Press do not tolerate hate speech, racist, sexist, ableist and other discriminatory behaviour in our collaborations. We do not condone agendas of free speech that legitimize harmful speech and absolve the actor of consequences.
This studio press actively works toward decolonial futures, in recognition of Indigenous sovereignties on this land, in allyship with the Black community, and other communities of colour resisting White supremacy. We expect our collaborators to understand, respect, and work toward these capacities as well.
︎Situated Practice / Land Back︎
Teh Studio and San Press work in Tkaronto, Mohawk meaning “the place in the water where the trees are standing”, and Dish with One Spoon territory.
This land is also Treaty 13 and Williams Treaties territory, land calculatedly stolen and taken violently from Indigenous peoples such as the AAnishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Wendat, who have been stewarding and living on the land long before the arrival of colonial settlers. They are still here, and continue to lead in fighting for land back and active stewardship of Turtle Island’s lands and waters.
