On Saturday, April 23rd, traditional Japanese candy artist, Candy5 will be joining us to demonstrate her craft.
Candy Miyuki studied traditional Japanese candy art under Master Kimura Takeo in 1994 and became the world’s first female candy artist in 300 years. In 1996, she moved to Orlando, Florida to perform at Walt Disney World’s Epcot Center. Since then, she has entertained and mesmerized many guests for 17 years with her amazing techniques at the Japan Pavilion. Now as a freelance artist, she hopes to expand her vision and share the Japanese art tradition by starting a world tour.
We will be taking orders ($10.00 per candy) on a first come, first serve basis from 4PM to 6PM. You can choose from her selection of designs. Make sure to get there early to place your order!
Miyuki will also be demonstrating her art on Sunday, April 24th at Japan Festival Boston. Lines at the Japan Festival are often very long for her work, so we're thrilled for her to join us on the 23rd!
