Character Bento Making

Modern Japanese bento have become an art from, known as ‘Chara-Ben’. There will be a new theme for this class announced every month, designed by Alice and based on popular characters, any special requests and seasonal variations. 

Character bento making is a fantastic way of exploring your creative side by experimenting and decorating with a range of traditional Japanese and also readily available ingredients. We’ll be using natural and healthy food dyes to colour the rice, seaweed and vegetables to decorate with.

This experience includes: 

  • Learning the art of chara-ben and natural rice dyes
  • Making a range of Japanese salads, pickles and at least 2 types of sushi
  • Your own reusable bento box (you’re welcome to bring your own if you wish)
  • Kawaii Japanese bento accessories to keep 
  • A PDF to be emailed afterwards, including all class recipes, tips and ingredient lists to continue your bento making
