Learn the art of beautiful, waste-free gift wrapping
No scissors, no tape, no paper, no waste – come and join us for a fun evening of Furoshiki, the Japanese art of gift-wrapping with cloth. It’s green, it’s easy, and the wrapping is part of the gift!
Learn how to wrap gifts with cloth the Japanese way by watching our instructor, Sophi Robertson, in live action. Or do you enjoy DIY? If so, bring along a square of cloth (20” or larger) and a small book and/or (empty) wine bottle and give cloth wrapping a try.
Get ready for an informative and crafty evening of fun!
