Learn to make Japanese Sweets – Autumn Nerikiri
September 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$65 – $75
Learn how to make Autumn-themed Nerikiri with Wagashi Master, Toshiko Sugii Steffes.
Attendees will make colorful Chrysanthemum designs of Nerikiri sweets.
This design is called “Kisewata(着せ綿)” and is a special design for “Chō yō no sekku（重陽の節句)” which means chrysanthemums celebrations or longevity celebration on September 9th. Chrysanthemums are believed to have the power to purge evil spirits and bring longevity in Japan.
Nerikiri was originally made to be served in the Japanese tea ceremony. Nerikiri is made by mixing and kneading the ingredients white butter bean paste and mochi rice cake.

“I am fascinated by the beauty of WAGASHI, which is expressive of the four seasons and nature. My creations are boundless as there is so much variety and sophistication in WAGASHI techniques. I have been trained in traditional WAGASHI with a renowned teacher, and contemporary WAGASHI with a rising star teacher. I am a certified master in making WAGASHI. I make custom order sweets, offer demonstrations, exhibit, and also teach WAGASHI making in the USA and Japan.
