Virtual Wagashi Japanese Sweet Making Workshop Register View Cart

Experienced instructors will lead an autumn themed traditional wagashi Japanese sweet making workshop. This will feature nerikiri, a kneaded sweet bean paste that can be made into many seasonal shapes. Easy to follow virtual instruction will include fashioning chrysanthemum and maple leaf sweets with autumn colors. Wagashi are usually served during the traditional Chanoyu tea ceremony gathering and can also be enjoyed with steeped tea and coffee. Recipes will be provided to participants. 
Kimika Soko Takechi & Larry Sokyo Tiscornia are long time instructors of the traditional Japanese art of Chanoyu, the tea ceremony. They teach Urasenke Chanoyu and its many related arts in San Francisco, California, and travel to many places sharing their knowledge with others. They also lecture and give demonstrations at both public and private schools as well as colleges and universities. They received their professional tea names in 1985 from Sen Soshitsu XV, the now retired head tea master of the Urasenke School of Tea, in Kyoto, Japan. The name Soko translates to "fragrance" and Sokyo to "bridge" and both received the Junkyoju, associate professor, degree from the Urasenke School in 1994. Larry received the Kyoju, professor, degree in 2020.
