DATE; 10am / 5pm (JST) on Tuesdays
Furoshiki is a square shaped cloth which has been used in Japan since long time ago to wrap items and carry them. This is a super sustainable wrapping tool and also very traditional culture in Japan.
In this online experience, you can learn not only how to use it, but also Japanese manner.
If you have one piece of clothe, you can reduce the plastic bags consumption. And you don’t need to carry shopping bags, either. How environmentally friendly!
To enjoy the class, please prepare your cloth (70-90cm square size) and something you want to wrap.
