Festive Character Bento Making

Join us in the run-up to Christmas this year to design and make your own festive bento box. We’ll introduce you to the idea of character bento, known by many in Japan as ‘charaben’. After acquiring some bento making techniques your normal lunchbox will be transformed!

We’ll be making snowmen using natural foods to create colour, such as turmeric, Japanese sweet potato powder and sesame seeds. You’ll also make super cute penguins that can be filled with your filling of choice. In this workshop there will be a strong focus on decoration and presentation using festive Japanese seaweed cutters, cute bento tools and accessories.

Everyone will receive a reusable bento box and authentic bento accessories to take away. We can tailor our workshops to suit a Christmas party, social event or any other ideas you may have! Whatever you choose, we promise that it will be very unique and enjoyable for all.
