Gift Wrapping with Tenugui, the Essential Japanese Cloth

Just in time for the holiday season, join us to learn traditional tenugui gift wrapping with Ruri Kippenbrock, founder of tenugui retailer Wuhao New York. Derived from the words te, or "hand," and nugui, meaning "wipe," these charming cotton cloths are more than mere hand towels. Sturdy, beautiful, versatile and reusable, tenugui lend themselves to decorative as well as practical purposes. In this workshop, learn tenugui wrapping techniques for a variety of shapes, including boxes, bottles and round objects.
