£111.00*Price includes the cost of £28.00 for the required kit.

Class Date: Sunday 27 January 2019 This class will cover the basics of ball construction and marking out the grid for traditional designs.  The student will have the choice of using traditional or more contemporary freestyle embroidery.  The completed embroidered ball can be hung or placed in a bowl as decoration. Temari (hand ball in Japanese) are folk art balls that were introduced in to Japan from China around the 7th century AD.  They were made using old kimonos that were formed into a ball and wrapped with strips of silk fabric.  Over time these balls have become an art form with more elaborate and delicate embroidery covering the surface.  Today Temari are made and given as gifts.  Some have a message in the centre while others may have a bell. The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day. This class will run from 10am-4pm at Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey KT8 9AU.
