December Green Drinks McHenry County – Beautiful and Sustainable Gift Wrapping

December 7 @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm

The event is hybrid, zoom info below

Topics To Discuss:
One style of gift wrapping in Japan employs the use of furoshiki. Furoshiki is a multi-purpose carry all created from a square piece of material. Fashioning soft wrappings from large squares of colorfully patterned cloth is employed to wrap and carry objects of all shapes and sizes. The convenience of the furoshiki lies in its adaptability since it has no definite shape as does a bag. It can adapt to fit whatever you put in it – large or small, round or square, soft or rigid.

Please join us for a very special meeting of Green Drinks where, after some hands-on learning you will be able to take home your very own furoshiki and a new skill that you can use to become just a little more “green.” All are welcome and materials will be provided.



About the speaker:

Sue Jensen, former art teacher, Environmental Defenders of McHenry County board member and recycling drive veteran volunteer is very fond of this style of gift wrapping. It is so appealing because in addition to being unique and beautiful, the material is reusable, washable and a fantastic way to create less waste. Sue will share a little background information and then get everyone involved in practicing this useful art form. Who knows, maybe after attending, you will become the catalyst amongst your family and friends encouraging a change in the way people think about packaging, wrapping and trash.
