Furoshiki Workshop

With Christmas just around the corner, and due to popular demand, the Calgary Buddhist Temple Sangha Engagement is pleased to host this workshop on Sunday, Nov 26/23 starting at 1pm at the Temple and taught by a local business rep from Nanao Kimono (www.nanaokimono.com). Nanao Kimono is a Japanese lifestyle shop in Kensington full of an assortment of treasures brought from Japan.

Cost of the workshop is $30 per person which includes a beautiful furoshiki (gst and eventbrite processing fee included). Maximum registration is 10 people so don’t delay – register today!

Furoshiki have been used for hundreds of years for a great many uses. The Word “Furo” translates to “bath”, and “shiki” means “to spread out”. Originally, they were used to wrap up sacred and important items at temples or shrines, then later were adopted for carrying personal items to and from the public bathhouse. More recently, Furoshiki became very popular as a simple handbag, grocery bag, and especially, as a reusable gift wrapping!
