This intermediate class builds on the skills covered in beginners class. We will be looking at creating colour schemes, power wrapping the balls, combination/complex divisions along with more detailed stitch patterns. Four new patterns will be covered in this two day class. 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.
