Earth Friendly Gift Wrapping with Furoshiki

Posted by SeekonkLibrary

Learn how to reuse spare fabric you already have to create stylish gift wraps in this free Furoshiki workshop at Seekonk Library on Wednesday, November 15 at 6:00 PM. Space is limited; registration with a SAILS library card is required.

Furoshiki refers to the traditional Japanese wrapping cloth used for presenting gifts and transporting goods. By using furoshiki wrapping and tying techniques, you can easily transform a square piece of fabric to an all in one wrapping solution for gifts of any shape, no tape or ribbons needed. Librarian Michelle Gario will present this informal workshop to show you the techniques that can be used to wrap varying shapes with one piece of fabric. Participants may bring in your own fabric (maximum 36” square) or use sample fabric provided.
