Event description
A feast for the eyes and a treat for the palette – join Nadiah for an introduction to the colourful world of wagashi!

About this event

Wagashi are beautiful Japanese sweets served with bitter matcha tea during Japanese tea ceremonies. Expertly hand-sculpted by the wagashi-maker, these sweets are truly a work of art! Come have a taste of this art form with Nadiah as she guides you in preparing two designs of wagashi – one traditional, one creative – in this workshop!

Meet Nadiah!

For me, wagashi is much more than a sweet treat. Not only does it embody the Japanese culture, it has become a way for me to destress, express myself creatively and connect with other like-minded Japanese cultural enthusiasts.

I first chanced upon Japanese culture as a teenager enjoying anime and manga. While it was simply a ‘phase’ for many of my friends, it unknowingly became a significant part of my life! (Literally, I found my significant other through our shared interest in Japanese culture!) With this programme, I hope that you will make new friends and have the chance to immerse yourself in this small facet of Japanese culture!

More about Wagashi

Wagashi are simply Japanese sweets that are often paired with green tea. Nerikiri, which will be introduced in this session, is a form of wagashi that is sculpted of bean paste, glutinous rice flour and sugar. Like many other styles of wagashi, nerikiri reflects the season in which it’s served in in form and in filling. Intricately shaped and designed, nerikiri typically follow traditional Japanese motifs such as sakura flowers and maple leaves. As it is paired with the bitter matcha served during Japanese tea ceremonies, the nerikiri is quite sweet stuffed with either a white bean or red bean filling.

Organiser My Community Festival

Organiser of Cuba Gula-Gula Saya: Japanese Wagashi with Nadiah

My Community Festival is a ground-up initiative showcasing Singapore’s best kept secrets and community stories through immersive tours, tastings and other cultural and heritage experiences.

4 Things To Know About The Festival

  • It is curated in collaboration with heritage practitioners, business owners, legacy brands as well as a number of religious and cultural institutions.
  • It builds upon the demand for culinary travel, cultural exploration and activity-based travel experiences - evident from the consumption habits of locals and tourists alike.
  • It aims to connect people from all walks of life through the festival platform in the hopes that they may go on to expand their social networks.
  • The festival has taken on an added dimension as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. It serves as a means in which to re-introduce locals back to the island’s ethnic enclaves and to support local, legacy establishments in a triumphant display of resilience as a community. Let’s come together to celebrate the Singaporean spirit after a challenging 2020.
