      Temari Class: Kids ages 10-14

      A thousand-year-old art from Japan, temari (handball) were originally made as simple toys. As the functional stitching became more decorative, these intricately embroidered balls developed into an art form. Temari are cherished gifts, symbolizing friendship and loyalty. They can be used as ornaments, as part of a centerpiece, or displayed on their own as an elegant decoration.

      Instructor Terri Whitney has been making temari since 1999, and is pursuing her Level 4 Certification as a Japan Temari Sensei and Creator from the Japan Temari Association. She helps her students use the repetitive wrapping and stitching involved in creating temari to develop a state of mindfulness. She also incorporates the history, math, sociology, and geometry of the temari tradition into her classes.

      No hand-stitching experience is required for this class. Those who practice other types of needlework will enjoy exploring the non-linear stitching patterns in this unique style.

      Note: These are three-session classes; participants are expected to attend all three. Registration fees are non-refundable. An additional $7 for supplies payable directly to the instructor.
      Each class is limited to 6 students. Advance registration required by February 16.

      Cost: Members $45 and Nonmembers $50 for 3 classes
