SHIHO SAKAMOTO’s Wagashi Workshop & Tasting

May 23, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
$45 per person

White squared sweets with footprint expressed the first snow of the season, ice cube shaped sweets with tint of light blue and bright yellow infused adolescent days: our feelings are transformed into a fascinating confectionery, wagashi, by hands and even you can partake of them. Sakamoto stated, “Many of my inspirations come from what I encounter everyday, such as the nature and the coming seasons. The transition from an inspiration of my imagination into a material form gives me a great pleasure as I am able to express what is inside me. This is my personal form of expression to show my love and gratitude to all that inspires me.” Join Sakamoto to design and realize your thoughts into wagashi. Followed by a tasting with green tea.
