Temari is an art form with hundreds of years of history in Japan. Ladies at the Imperial Court once made them to play games and compete on their embroidery skills. Before rubber balls, children used them for outdoor play. Modern temari are beautiful gifts for special occasions. 

During the class session, students will learn how to make the sphere base, mark guidelines for stitching, and practice several types of patterns to use in their own temari. Previous sewing or embroidery experience helpful, but not required. 

Heather is certified with the Japan Temari Association and was an MCAC Artisan Workshop Resident in November 2018.
