Wagashi Workshop in London for Halloween

October poster2It was already two weeks ago. Just before the Halloween night came I had hosted my Japanese Sweet Making Workshop in the Halloween theme. As you can probably imagine it was such a fun class with all the fun loving participants. We gathered in a newly open shop in Kensington High Street on Saturday morning. I planned to make three sweets for this day. Although one of them was originally the purple flower in the photo on the right side, I got the better idea in the last minute and three designs we created were Jack-O’-Lantern, Ghost and Frankenstein’s Monster.

 

Wagashi Making Workshop in the Halloween Theme

So all of us sat comfortably at the table at my new workshop venue that is a lovely shop with lots of Halloween related decoration. The owners of the shop love Halloween and also Japanese culture so it was the perfect venue and they were very enthusiastic about this event.

I am going to have WAGASHI Japanese Sweet Making Workshop this Saturday. The original sweet selection I was planning to make at the workshop is these three in the following photo. I chose the purple flower because it is a traditional Japanese sweet shape and you can learn how to use the Wagashi tool and your fingers well. However, the theme of this event is Halloween. It’s the only occasion that you can make anything crazy. So I was searching for some design which is easy to make and attractive, as well as looks very Halloween!
