For those who would like to develop their skills in this Japanese art, this design is called 'Interlocking Squares where the ball is divided into eight 'complex divisions'. 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 Suitable for students who have attended the workshop 'Making a Temari Ball' or who have made a temari ball previously.
