Meanwhile, intermediate sessions will introduce traditional and innovative wagashi tools, advanced shaping and colouring techniques, expressing wagashi aesthetics, special recipes, and more.

Specific designs can also be learned in single day workshops devoted to scissors-work or needle-work.

The hands-on, instructional classes aren’t cheap to attend and while hobbyists and enthusiasts are welcome, the masterclasses are billed as a way to “raise attention in the professional chef industry.”
