The Smithy Store will host designer, Joy Newton, as she shares a unique, holiday-inspired demonstration just in time for the gift-giving season.
Using her lovely flax linen tea towels and napkins, Joy will show guests the art of ‘furoshiki’. Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth used to wrap all sorts of objects, often in elaborate shapes. In Japanese culture, furoshiki functions as a method of communication, with its many knots and ties, representing the ties between people.
The event is free and open to the community!
