Furoshiki Gift Wrapping Workshop - 16 December 2021
Join Kyoko Kimura Morgan at WAZA Japan Labo on 16 December 2021 for an extra edition of our popular Furoshiki Gift Wrapping Workshop. Kyoko is the founder of Origami for Africa and a stong proponent of the Japanese concept of "mottainai" (勿体無い) - a feeling of regret when something of use is wasted.
