In Japan, there's a beautiful culture of wrapping treasured items, gifts, and belongings in Furoshiki (a Japanese wrapping cloth).

With no cutting, sticking or waste, give thoughtful, beautiful gifts and say goodbye to single-use wrapping paper, bags and packaging for good.

In this 60-minute workshop, learn some of the key techniques behind Furoshiki gift wrapping a book and a bottle from Tomoko Kakita, a Japanese Furoshiki expert.

You will also receive a copy of Tomoko’s book Furoshiki and the Japanese art of gift wrapping and a Furoshiki designed by Tomoko.
