SS3 Stitching Temari with Rod Byatt
$95 ($115 non-members)
One-day course: Friday, 5 January 2018
at Guild Rooms, Burwood
Learn the ancient Japanese folk art tradition of stitching on a small sphere. Originally made by mothers for their daughters as toys given on New Year’s Day, temari balls now represent deep friendship and loyalty. Work with geometric patterns and a restricted colour palette. Beginners will be introduced to the techniques, while the more experienced will improve their existing skillset. Beginners will have partially completed at least two balls by the end of the day. Intermediate/advanced students should contact the tutor ahead of the workshop and advise preferred designs and stitches.
Skill Level: No previous experience necessary
Equipment: Tapestry or large-eyed sewing needle, small scissors, tape measure, notebook & pen
Materials: Provided: pearl cotton #5 thread, prepared styrofoam balls. Intermediate/advanced students bring their own balls and threads.
