Temari Ball Workshop with Brian Couch
November 16 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Learn the Art of Japanese Temari Balls with artist Brian Couch.
Temari is a folk art form in Japan, originating in China. Temari translates as “hand ball” in Japanese. These beautiful geometric patterned handmade balls can be made with materials found around the house. Historically they were made from old kimonos. Temaris are highly prized gifts that symbolize friendship and loyalty. A perfect gift for this holiday season or to take home. No previous skills are necessary.
Suggested Materials to bring that can be found around your house: old clean socks, plastic grocery bags, plastic soda tops, paper towel centers, dryer lint, paper. Please bring and share with the group.
Fee: A $5 fee covers thread for the workshop and a suggested $10 donation to support future community art programming.
