Japan has a uniquely clever way for using fabrics called Furoshiki which is a piece of square cloth for wrapping gifts and carrying items. It's history dates back over 1300 years and uses clever knots and techniques which transform the fabric into bags, bottle wraps, tissue covers and many other uses.

During this workshop from Hands on Brisbane, participants learn how to do Furoshiki but will not be taking any of the materials or finished products home.

Suitable for adults and children aged 12 and up but taught at an adult level, this class would be a great one for your tweens and teens to take part in as a fun family outing.

The classes take place at The Gardens Club which feels like an oasis in the middle of the city. Look out through large windows into the lush Brisbane City Botanic Gardens.

Sounds a good idea for giving gifts an added *zing*.
