Wagashi: Nature and Tradition in Sweets
Talk & Demonstration
April 17, 2020
As a precaution to slow the spread of COVID-19, this event has been cancelled. All tickets purchased via Eventbrite will receive full refunds. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Join us for a special talk and demonstration by wagashi specialist Sachiko Matsunami of Wagashi Moments on the making of wagashi (artisanal Japanese sweets).
Wagashi is an art that mirrors everyday life. It represents all things living and natural by transforming traditional sweet-making into a consumable art that references nature, the seasons, flowers and more. Developed to compliment Japanese tea ceremony, it reflects the ritualistic precision and deliberation that is at the heart of tea ceremony.
The talk and demonstration will be followed by a reception to sample Sachiko Matsunami’s wagashi, accompanied by organic Japanese tea provided by Harvest Index.
