Temari 101

Dates: October 16, 2021 - October 17, 2021

Cost per ticket: $245.00

About class

Come explore the ancient Japanese art of temari—beautiful embroidered balls. Students begin with a prepared ball and dive immediately into the fun of creating geometric designs with pearl cotton and simple stitches. During the two days, participants learn all the fundamentals of the craft: how to wrap and prepare the balls for stitching, marking for different designs, stitching basics, and layered and woven design fundamentals. Jen believes strongly that creativity and proficiency grow best in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. All supplies are provided, and students will be provided with enough materials and patterns to complete four unique temari.

All the knowledge needed to continue in this craft is covered, so it is an intense two days of learning.  Therefore some students may elect to also sign up for the optional “Temari Open Studio” the next day, to spend some additional time cementing their skills and working on their projects with the instructor.
