Furoshiki Workshop

The Art Of Japanese Fabric Wrapping

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health threat, we are suspending public programs scheduled from March 16 through September 30, 2020. Morikami will continue to reevaluate and reassess as information about the virus and its impact on public health is presented.

People have used furoshiki, a square reusable wrapping cloth, since the 16th century in a variety of ways to wrap different sized and shaped objects. Learn how to wrap a wine bottle, a watermelon, books, and make a tote bag from a furoshiki. Each participant will take home the cotton wrap cloth used during this workshop.
