Japanese Temari Ball Weaving – New!
Explore Temari, an ancient Japanese craft begun in the 600’s by noblewomen using silk thread to stitch around a core of rice hulls to create a soft ball, or “mari,” that they used for gentle indoor games and for decoration. We’ll experiment with Styrofoam balls, baby’s yarn and sewing thread for the core, then use perle cotton thread for the decorative stitches.
