In this 1.5hr session, you’ll learn how to use Furoshiki, the art of Japanese gift wrapping, to wrap a range of gifts, from bottles to books.
Starting with a basic method, which can be used for all sorts of shapes and sizes. Then a more challenging bottle and book wrapping, which help make these simple gift items so much more special. Make a simple bottle of wine or books a very special gift, just using a Furoshiki cloth!
Furoshiki and demo items provided.
If you have a gift to wrap, please bring it along.
You will take home a Japanese Furoshiki 50 cm x 50 cm, which is perfect to wrap a small gift such as a candle, mug etc.
A complimentary drink & nibbles included!

We are always looking to introduce the world to Japanese eco-friendly goods and products new and old.
Japanese culture and their traditional practices aren’t only delicate and subtle but also practical and convenient in everyday life.
Focussing on an ethical lifestyle and zero waste living, we aim to revisit and revive traditional Japanese practices that even many Japanese people have forgotten about today. That’s how Eco Japan was born.
We can do something to help the world’s environmental crisis by discovering Japanese goods old and new and encouraging a focus on quality long-lasting products with sustainability, zero waste and ethical practice at the heart of our living.
We are introducing and producing eco-friendly Japanese products.
Japan is famous for its contrast of old and new. One of the world’s most technologically advanced countries whilst also steeped in tradition. A modern society yet filled with ancient practices still found in daily life.
Our aim is to shine a spotlight onto these traditional Japanese craft products. Highlighting natural, eco-friendly products and practices that can enrich your everyday life.
