Dates: April 5 - April 5
Cost per ticket: $45
Come and learn all about the ancient craft of Japanese temari. Find out about the history and development of this unusual art, right up to its present day prevalence both in Japan and around the world. The secrets of what is actually inside these lovely embroidered balls will be revealed, as well as what they are used for and how they are made. Best of all, you’ll get to see oodles of examples. Temari offers fiber artists a great avenue to explore bold color theory — you might not want to weave or wear a bright rainbow scarf, but a rainbow temari is a delightful thing! You’ll see different examples of the same pattern done in different colorways to really highlight the effect color has on patterns, and you’ll learn about some of the different geometries and patterns that are unique to this craft. There will be plenty of time for questions at the end of the talk. Get ready to fall in love with the amazing art of Japanese temari!
