For those who would like to develop their skills in this Japanese art and learn a more intricate, but not difficult design, the Chrysanthemum is worked using an eight 'complex division' measurement. 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 at least attended the workshop 'Making a Temari Ball' and ideally a Level 2 Temari workshop, or have made several temari balls previously.
Refreshments Tea & coffee is provided throughout the day, with home baking Please bring your own packed lunch.
What you need to bring One pre-wrapped polystyrene ball* (so that we can start measuring at the start of the workshop).
* Please use a 60 mm polystyrene ball. The ball should be wrapped to the cotton stage and be ready for measuring at the start of the workshop. Please make sure the ball is wrapped with a good layer of wool before wrapping with the cotton, so that it is not too small.
Under normal circumstances, all other materials and equipment are provided. N.B. You will be provided with a poly ball as part of your pack, to replace the one you have wrapped.
Cost £45 per person including all materials.
About the Workshop You should bring one pre-wrapped ball with you, ready for measuring (see above)*. You will learn to measure out eight 'complex divisions' and work the Chrysanthemum design, which is replicated 6 times over the ball. There will be a range of coloured threads to choose from.
