Japanese Gift Wrapping

Put some "wow" into your gift wrapping.

Japan is renowned for its exquisite gift wrapping, often offered for free in stores across the country.

In this class, students will learn the basic techniques used in wrapping different types of item while also delving into the tradition and culture behind the art.

In addition, students will try their hand at creating a fan effect with a bag and bow and presenting a gift in a one-of-a-kind "shirt and tie" arrangement.

Hiroe Miyaoka is a professional package designer, published author and corporate consultant. A graduate of Tokyo’s Vantan Design Institute, she has been teaching Japanese gift wrapping techniques for more than 15 years.
