Upcoming Events & Sustainability Activities

Peony Pavilion PerformanceAs the NCTA program has grown and expanded across the country, we have become increasingly interested in exploring ways that we can strengthen NCTA alumni teachers' interest in and commitment to improving teaching about East Asia. Within the Pittsburgh region we will support the following types of sustainability activities:






Decorative Sushi Workshop

Thursday, October 11 from 5:30-7:30 PM at
Mother of Sorrows School, 3264 Evergreen Drive, Murrysville, PA 15668.  Parking is free in the school parking lot.


Please join NCTA and the Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania on Thursday, October 11 from 5:30-7:30pm as we welcome back our cultural ambassadors from Handa City (Japan) for a hands-on workshop on the culinary art of Decorative Sushi (kazari makizushi).   Kazari Makizushi is patterned or decorative sushi that is derived from several sushi techniques. Come watch Mrs. Fumiyo Iwadachi demonstrate the technique for this decorative sushi style, and then try your hand at it.  No prior experience is necessary, but please bring a sharp kitchen knife, a tea towel, and a container (to take some of the sushi home).  We have applied for Act 48 for this workshop, and we will provide dinner.


Registration is required and the deadline is October 4. To register, please email Patrick Hughes at hughespw@pitt.edu (include your PPID# if you want Act 48 hours for this workshop)
