Let’s enjoy “ORINIGIRI!” Craft it, Squeeze it and Bite it!
What is “ORINIGIRI?”
ORINIGIRI is a new type of art (and way of eating!) that combines the fun features of “Origami” and “Onigiri (Rice balls).” Guests who participate in this workshop can experience the great and interesting combination of origami and onigiri. We will hold a short lecture on how to create the ORINIGIRI during this workshop so first time participants (both children and adults) are all welcome!
ORINIGIRI is a type of Japaneses art in which you can enjoy both visually and with your tastebuds. Here are some of the things we’ll learn and get to do during the workshop! ORINIGIRI is made of rice, seaweed, your favorite ingredients for filling and brought together with a magic origami sheet (that you can decorate!). Using just these items, you’ll be able to create your own ORINIGIRI in this workshop. Everyone can be an ORINIGIRI food designer! But, in order to make your ORINIGIRI even more delicious, we’ll need one last thing. It’s the special ORINIGIRI dance! Why don’t we have fun dancing together? By dancing you can make your ORINIGIRI several times more delicious! Finally, we will end the workshop by eating our delicious ORINIGIRI and chatting with everyone.
We’re looking forward to meeting and having a great time making ORINIGIRI with everyone!
