Join Christine Leech, author of Zero Waste Gift Wrap, in a fun tutorial to teach you how to wrap Christmas gifts sustainably.
Forget glittery wrapping papers and sticky tape; all you really need is a square of fabric in this introduction to the ancient Japanese art of Furoshiki. Follow Christine on Instagram @sewyeah
What you'll learn:
Christine will show you a selection of knotting techniques for wrapping a variety of differently-shaped gifts.
What you'll need:
- Squares of thin fabric: approx 50-70cm silk or polyester scarves work well, or thin cotton fat quarters.
- A book, bottle or any other gifts you would like to wrap to practice with.
Preparation in advance of the session:
- Ensure you order any relevant products and materials from JohnLewis.com to reach you in advance of the event.
- Ensure you have all your equipment, materials and assets ready to go as there is no preparation time in the workshop.
Joining a virtual experience: Our Virtual Experiences will take place via Zoom. We’d recommend using a laptop or desktop if possible to make it easier for you to take part. Two days before your Virtual Experience, we’ll send you full details on how to join.
