Workshop with Anzara Clark
Japanese Wrapping Cloths (Furoshiki)
Just in time for Christmas here is a workshop that will help you to wrap your gifts in unique and sustainable ways. Workshop Length: approximately 2 hours.
Japanese wrapping cloths – ‘Furoshiki’ were used in the Edo period to carry clothing and other items to public bathhouses. They have also been used for practical, ceremonial and gift-wrapping purposes. Compact, light weight and re-usable, they are perfect for a sustainable approach to gift-wrapping and are a gift by themselves.
In this short workshop we will learn basic furoshiki tying variations and how to wrap different size and shape objects in practical and beautiful ways. We will also learn to make simple origami gift boxes for gift giving, wrapping or storing your furoshiki in.
Materials to bring: Squares of fabric in different sizes of approximately 10cm square, 30cm square and 50cm square.
Materials provided: Paper for origami boxes.
When: Saturday 12 December, 11am – 12.30pm Cost: $5
