Provided by:

Event runs from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM


***Event has been Cancelled owing to concerns over the spread of COVID19**** Join the Japan Foundation at Campbelltown Arts Centre for a special talk and demonstration by wagashi specialist Sachiko Matsunami of Wagashi Moments. She will show you the traditional art of making 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. Due to current advice on public gatherings, please contact the host of this event to confirm it is proceeding as planned. Entry Cost All tickets $15 - Plus booking fees.
