Searching for fun indoor activities to try out in lockdown? Join Pure Bliss Foods' online vegan Japanese dessert making class and get creative in the kitchen with like-minded people!

In this two-hour online class, you will be guided through the step-by-step process of making vegan Wagashi by your experienced teacher Kathryn. Wagashi are traditional Japanese sweets and are typically made from plant-based ingredients.

Before the class, you will receive some Nerikiri powder specially prepared by Kathryn using pure white beans. You will begin the class by making the dough and then learn how to colour it to create different tones and hues. Get creative and mould and roll your dough into three to four unique designs and shapes.

Whether you're looking for virtual birthday party ideas for a lockdown celebration or you are just looking for fun group activities where you can spend quality time with loved ones who live in a different state, this online dessert making class is a great option for you.

Not only will you leave with vegan dessert to take home and eat or share with your family, but you'll also have new skills to practice too! You can also purchase an additional 5 pc matcha bowl gift set to complete your wagashi experience at home.

Optional:
Matcha Bowl five-piece gift set (Matcha bowl, brush, brush stand, Matcha powder stick, tray) - add an extra $100 (includes postage). Please see photos nine and 10.


Knowledge required
Patience is required.
 
What you'll get in your craft kit

  • Nerikiri powder

The teacher was amazing. I got way more out of this class than just learning to make a Japanese desert. Patience, slow down, focus are a few things involved in this art form. I really enjoyed it. I need alot of practice to get good. Thank you again

Loved the class and Kathryn as a great teacher-patient and calm and demonstrated clearlyand allowed for flexibility. After the class I created another wagashi-applying what I learned

I really enjoyed this class and like how my desserts turned out. There were some logistical issues that made things more challenging though. I didn't realise there was pre-work for the class as nothing in the confirmation email suggested this, and I'd been saving the kit I got to open on the day of the class. Little did I know, I was supposed to have prepared two doughs the day before! I think it would really be helpful to have the red and white bean pastes included in the kit rather than having to make them myself. Otherwise, the class wear very enjoyable. Thank you!

The wagashi making class with Kathryn was so fun! I love that she sends you the tools you will need (so you can keep practicing in your own time) and she uses all natural colouring. This was a great bday gift and it works really well over zoom. Thank you Kathryn!

I had the most wonderful time making Wagashi with Kathryn. I think this is a fantastic experience for anyone looking for a new creative outlet. Kathryn is a great teacher and very patient.
