About this Event

Japanese Sweet Making Experience Workshop in London.

‘Wagashi’ is a general term for a Japanese Sweet. There are many types of Japanese sweets but a fresh type called ‘Nerikiri’ is the one that is often served at a Tea Ceremony. It's got a soft and flexible texture that can be made into decorative seasonal sweets. It is usually Vegan and Gluten free as well as edible art.

In October the theme of the sweet is Halloween! We are going to make sweets into cute and fun shapes such as Jack-O'-Lanterns and Ghost. There are many steps in Nerikiri making and the process takes time. In this workshop you will learn how to shape a sweet by hand.

The class will be taught by Mutsumi who has been making Japanese sweets for many years. She has designed two types of seasonal Wagashi sweets for a Kimono shop’s Matcha Bar in Notting Hill every month for three years and is now teaching how to make these sweets.

The space is limited to a small group.
