Mitsuhiki Card

This class teaches Mitsuhiki and Noshi folding. So you say what is that? Well the definitions are below, but is simply an art of wire wrapping and gift card giving.

Mitsuhiki: Simply put it is (水引) an ancient Japanese art form that uses a special cord.

Noshi: (熨斗?) are a kind of ceremonial origami fold entirely distinct from “origami-tsuki”. They are not certificates, but are attached to gifts to express “good wishes”. Noshi consists of white paper folded with a strip of dried abalone or meat, considered a token of good fortune.
