Furoshiki and Origami

天神 Tenjin

Hello, my name is Lisa and I’m currently doing an internship at SUiTO FUKUOKA.
Today I learned how to fold an origami pocket for Kuromoji, wooden natural chopsticks used for the tea ceremony, and how to use a Furoshiki for carrying and wrapping things up.
The first steps of the origami are similar to the crane origami and the last steps are easily remembered.
After the folding, a single Kuromoji get inserted in a pocket on the front side of the object. We repeated this process several times with colorful papers, until a small pot was filled with packaged Kuromoji.
Next, I learned several techniques to use a Furoshiki. In order to do so, everyone has to master the single and the basic knot first. After a short training, the next task was to knot a bag out of the cloth. Another wrapping method with two rings resulted in a more fashionable and stable bag.
Subsequently, we wrapped wine bottles in various ways, e.g. one bottle, two bottles, with and without a carrying loop. Due to repeatedly applying one of the two simple basic knots, the Furoshiki can be easily used for lots of different purposes. I enjoyed learning about how to flexibly use a Furoshiki.
