Furoshiki is a Japanese wrapping cloth, about the size of a bandana or a scarf (a larger sizes are also available, though).
It is used to wrap goods or shopping items. Because it is re-usable, it is economical. And, there’re many colors and print patterns to choose from.
Kazuko teaches how to use Furoshiki to wrap things, like a box, a flat squarebox,
This week, my students practiced Nijyu-Ike.
For my student, Jo Ann, this is her first time to complete Nijyu-Ike without Kenzan at the bottom. She made her own Matagis from stick & wire.
