On Exhibit in the Villa - Furoshiki: The Art of Wrapping
Furoshiki is a square piece of fabric used for carrying, storing and wrapping items. In Japan, it dates back to the mid Edo period (1603-1868). Originally it was a way of wrapping clothes at public baths. However, going beyond its humble beginnings, with the use of beautiful fabric the furoshiki developed into an elegant wrapping style. It is experiencing a renewed popularity in Japan. The furoshiki accommodates both simple and hard to wrap items, both geometric and irregular. See our display of modern furoshiki the green way to carry items from small boxes to round watermelons to paintings.

Fall 2010: World Equestrian Games, Fall Festival
To Celebrate the World Equestrian Games, children (and adults) all over Scott County folded paper horses for our 1000 Origami Horse Display. By the end the "herds" had swelled to 2000! We also created the the largest origami horse from a single piece of paper in North America, and we think a world record breaker from 2 pieces of paper standing 9 feet tall.
