Event description

Description

Furoshiki is the Japanese art of fabric wrapping and tying and is what was traditionally used prior to the proliferation of plastic bags.

Furoshiki perfectly embraces the 3R's (Reduce, Reuse Recycle) and is a lovely no waste alternative to wrapping paper. As fabric comes in so many beautiful colours and patterns it provides you with the perfect opportunity to "shoosh" up your gift and add a personal touch!. Best of all, the recipient is able to reuse the fabric!

During this 1 and 1/2hr workshop you will learn how to tie your own no sew shopping bag. You will also learn the technique of wrapping various items such as books, bottles and boxes. Never use wrapping paper again!


The Home Sustainability Program is funded by Shoalhaven City Council and workshops are offered to residents in the Shoalhaven Local Government area only.

If you have any questions regarding your booking please call Council Waste Services on (02) 4429 3129 prior to the day of the workshop.
