Extend: Furoshiki! Eco Friendly Wrapping Cloths
Aloha HPA! Here are simple instructions on how to use your fabric squares as furoshiki. The demo is done by a few of the Cureton students using your students' fabriics. We will be having a half hour furoshiki wrapping workshop once I have the Cureton students fabrics cut....for now we explored just this one style of wrapping quickly with a few of your students' fabrics. This Japanese traditional wrapping cloth is a great way to incorporate eco-friendly habits into our lives.
