Online Furoshiki Workshop

On Tuesday 7 March, Year 9 Japanese students tried their hand at the 1,300-year-old art of furoshiki wrapping. With the aid of Kamimura Sensei and Akahane Sensei, a representative from the Japan Foundation based in Sydney we were instructed on how to tie a mamusubi.


Using a mamusubi knot we were able to wrap, make handles and add cute bow ties using the furoshiki cloth on our lunchboxes, laptop bags, bottles and even spheres.

I felt it was a great experience and a great learning to learn about the lucky symbols and the Japanese tradition of Furoshiki wrapping.
