The ketupat holds a significant role in the popular dishes during Hari Raya Aidilfitri, but did you know that they come in various shapes and sizes? The method of weaving the ketupat may be similar, but the difference lies in the complexity of each weave, particularly the kepala (head) and ekor (tail).
In this workshop, learn more about the history of ketupat and its different versions from around the world – both traditional and modern. Put into practice what you learn in a fun hands-on activity and learn to weave your very own ketupat!
