About This Event

Japanese Sweet Making Experience Workshop at Havan.

‘Wagashi’ is a general term for Japanese Sweets. There are many types of wagashi, including mochi and wasanbon. The fresh type called ‘Nerikiri’ is often served at Chado, Tea Ceremony.

These sweets have a soft and flexible texture that can be made into decorative, seasonal, edible pieces of art.

At this workshop, you will learn to create three different seasonal designs.

  • The Ginko Leaf
  • Momiji Mape Leaf
  • Chrysanthemum

The class will be taught by Mutsumi who has been making Japanese sweets for many years. She is the artist behind the wonderful mochi that many of our customers will have enjoyed in the tea bar at Havan each weekend.
