Temari originated in China and moved to Japan in the 7th century CE. Originally a folk art, it gradually became a traditional art form, transforming from hand balls for children (“temari” means “hand ball”) to extraordinary gifts representing great friendship. This course is a beginning class in Temari, a Japanese form of embroidery on a ball. It will move from using a pre-wound ball and simple design to having students wind the ball themselves, put the guidelines on, and stitch gradually more complex designs. How fast each student goes will depend on whether they want to do “homework,” and different student tempos can be accommodated.

 MATERIALS FEE: 45 dollars, First pre-wound ball, Threads, Needles, Rice Hulls for the insides of the balls, Cotton Batting for the insides of the balls, Serger thread for wrapping

Level: Beginner, some experience with embroidery is helpful.

Registration: Members : $225 , Non-members $ 260

Instructor: Rebecca Norris

What to bring/how to dress: scissors and straight pins with colored heads (~1 ½”), if they have them, as well as an old pair of nylons or tights, which will have to be cut up.
