Temari Ball Workshop
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. All supplies are included, and students will be provided with enough materials and patterns to complete four unique temari, with two additional patterns for later works. Jen believes strongly that creativity and proficiency grow best in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, so be prepared to have a great time while learning a new and addictive craft.
