FUROSHIKI: Boundless curiosity from the world of square-cloth
Lecture and Workshop on Furoshiki
Dating back to the Edo Period furoshiki, literally meaning bath mat, is a square cloth dyed in a striking array of colors and patterns from subtle to vibrant. Originally used to wrap and carry items, the furoshiki is now used as gift wrappers, table coverings and decorations. It is the original tote bag, only infinitely more versatile and steeped in rich history.
FUROSHIKI: Boundless curiosity from the world of square-cloth is an intimate lecture and workshop led by Akiko Sakai, Naomi Ando, and Keiko Fukuda, who are all instructors from the Furoshiki Study Group in Kyoto, Japan.
Admission Free. Space is limited. Reservation is required.
