Tang yuan (Chinese: 湯圓 / Viet: Sủi dìn / bánh trôi nước) is a glutinous rice dumpling dessert served in a sweet hot broth. In Chinese, the dumplings are translated as “soup balls”, or as "floating water cakes" from Vietnamese. As we make the dessert, we will be sharing stories and recipes that express what togetherness and family mean to you. We will also be making origami whilst listening to a playlist of music that engages with themes of migration, identity, belonging and, of course, food!

This workshop is led by Bettina Fung, Cuong Pham and Annie Jael Kwan from Asia-Art-Activism and is part of World Wide Wontons (WWW), a project of stories, recipes and practices that centres food as politics and opens up discussions around migration, identity, and belonging.

This workshop will begin at 15:30 and take place in The Box. The Box will be open from 15:00 if you would like to settle before the workshop starts.

This event is part of our Lunar New Year Weekend at FACT. Discover our full programme of events.
