This is a Chrysanthemums design with a difference, as the petals of the chrysanthemum have a 'swirl' effect and are stitched 'off centre'. These traditionally geometric patterns will inspire you to create your own colour combinations and designs. They make lovely ornaments or gifts, and are great to hang on a Christmas tree or in the window.
Suitability - Advanced Suitable for students who have attended the workshop 'Making a Temari Ball' for Beginners, or worked several temari balls previously.
Date(s) Saturday 11th November 2023 (fully booked).

* It is suggested that you use an 80 mm polystyrene ball. The ball should be wrapped to the cotton stage and be ready for measuring at the start of the workshop. Please ensure that an A4 sized tape will go all the way around the ball. This design is not suitable for a ball of less than 80mm.
