Workshop Overview

A strong emphasis is put on wrapping and presenting gifts in Japanese culture. We are accustomed to having things presented in a beautiful manner. In this workshop, we will be using onigiri (rice ball) decorated with miniature paper Christmas trees that make beautiful and original Japanese-inspired Christmas gifts. Participants will be taught to fold and wrap their onigiri gifts in elegant Japanese paper as perfect presents for all of their loved ones. Two different types of onigiri will be made, one to enjoy yourself and one that will be used as a Christmas gift. Creating this “ORINIGIRI” gift is simple, all you need to do is think of a special person you want to give the gift to and you’ll easily be able to create an original Christmas gift! These onigiri gifts will be made using beautiful Japanese paper and the following ingredients:

- Rice - Salmon flakes - Umeboshi (pickled plum) - Kombu (kelp) - Tuna mayonnaise

What you will be doing in this workshop:

- Learn the history and culture of the Japanese gifting style - Make traditional onigiri using special ORINIGIRI paper - Design your own Christmas gift using onigiri
