Adding an asian touch to xmas

Want to add a unique twist to your Christmas celebrations? We have just the thing for you, If you’re seeking an innovative workshop for your team. Introducing our Japanese Furoshiki gift-wrapping workshop—available on demand! This workshop will show you how to wrap gifts with a touch of Japanese tradition, adding both elegance and sustainability to your holiday presents.

Furoshiki, the traditional Japanese art of wrapping items with a single piece of cloth, brings a delightful mix of beauty and eco-friendliness to the holiday season. Unlike traditional wrapping paper, which often ends up in the trash, furoshiki can be reused, displayed, or even worn, making it a sustainable alternative for the environmentally conscious.

  • Flexible Time Slot at Your Workplace : one hour session during lunch break or after work
  • Discover Various Techniques: explore different furoshiki wrapping styles to create stunning and personalized gifts.
  • Promote Sustainability: Learn how furoshiki encourages eco-friendly practices, reducing waste and promoting reusability during the holidays and beyond.

“Dear Asia’s cooking class was a big hit for my team. Everyone had a great time.”

Team building cooking classes

A cooking class is a fantastic way to bring your team together during Christmas, fostering collaboration while everyone learns about new favors and culture. Dear Asia is not a traditional culinary school. We specialised in hosting cooking classes for private groups, which are designed with team building activities in mind, and are perfect for corporate events. 

Option 1 – Korean KFC & beer

Discover the bold flavors of Korean cuisine and the art of using condiments to create the popular Korean-style fried chicken (or cauliflower). Pair your dish with authentic Korean beer for a truly satisfactory experience.

Option 2 – Dumpling Making Workshop

This dumpling workshop is perfect for large groups, with minimal cooking and no chopping required. Our DIY filling setup allows you to customize each dumpling to suit any dietary preference, making it a versatile and fun activity for everyone.

Option 3 – Kimchi making party

Kimchi making is a hands-on experience that offers immense satisfaction, especially when you get to take home your own jar of homemade kimchi. Ideal for a 1-1.5 hour express-style workshop, it’s a quick and fun way to learn about this iconic Korean dish while creating something uniquely yours.

Option 4 – Creative Bento Challenge

Unleash your creativity this Christmas with a bento-making challenge, where guests craft beautifully arranged Japanese lunch boxes. It’s a fun and artistic way to celebrate the holiday season, with a friendly competition to see who can design the most festive bento.
