Japanese furoshiki is the artform that allows you to use a single square of fabric to wrap almost anything -- you can bundle your swim kit to carry it to the pool to or wrap up awkward-shaped gifts to give to your gran. This skill will let you, in a pinch, easily carry a watermelon home using your scarf as a bag! This style of wrapping is becoming more popular as an eco-friendly alternative to wrapping paper -- and the cloth becomes part of the gift! Furoshiki is to fabric what origami is to paper. This workshop will require some dexterity and patience - if you have less dexterity then you will require more patience but we'll get there together!

Attending this workshop will cost £15 (includes a furoshiki cloth to take home)
Suitable age range 12+
Attendees should bring Bring a variety of items you'd carry on the regular, such as laptop, water bottle, books, mobile phone and keys, etc. You will practice wrapping using these items.
