Private and corporate workshops available on request.
Learn Furoshiki, the Japanese Art of Gift Wrapping
Make gift-giving extra special by learning the ancient art of Japanese gift wrapping using Furoshiki cloths. In Japan, gift giving is an important cultural ritual, and the presentation is just as key as the gift itself. Plus, with no cutting, sticking or waste, your Furoshiki is completely reusable.
The workshops can be tailored to suites your occasions. The length could be between 30 to 60 minutes.
You’ll have opportunity to buy a copy of Tomoko's recently released book Furoshiki and the Japanese art of gift wrapping. If you’d like to take a Furoshiki or two home with you, they’ll be available to purchase on the day, including a range designed by Tomoko herself.
At the Kew Gardens 8th December 2023 at Nash Conservatory
Tomoko Kakita is an interior architect based in London, UK. Living for over two decades in the UK and being immersed in a very different culture has reinforced her appreciation for Japan’s unique traditions. Share in her rediscovery of Japanese heritage in her first book about Furoshiki 風呂敷 and explore ways to introduce the concept of ‘ma’ 間 (pronounced as má), ‘the space between things’ into your home and life.
If you are interested in working together and would like to discuss in detail, I'd love to hear from you.
