WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Origami is the art of Japanese paper folding. Its practitioners create complex shapes out of paper without the need of glue or scissors. Origami's influence can be seen in art, technology, science and beyond.
A furoshiki, on the other hand, is a type of wrapping cloth traditionally used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. They have been present in Japanese culture for hundreds of years and are making a well-deserved comeback due to their eco-friendly designs.
In this short program, held at our state-of-the-art Grand TJT experience room, you will be taught how to make origami and furoshiki creations by our nationally-licensed instructors. In the first half of the lesson, you will create a variety of origami shapes, both simple and complex, such as the crane, Mount Fuji, and ninja stars. Then, in our furoshiki activity, you will learn the basic knots and techniques to furoshiki wrapping, and have a go at some of the more complex methods such as bag making and bottle wrapping.
Note: As of March 2020, all activities will now take place in our brand-new cultural experiences room, Grand TJT. Some current website photos do not represent this location.
