ABOUT THE CLASS
A square reusable wrapping cloth is called a furoshiki in Japan. People have used furoshiki 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.
