This session offers a 5-Day version of the 3-Day class, with the added opportunity to try miniatures for making jewelry. Geared for all levels, beginners will learn the basics of Temari (Japanese embroidered string balls): wrapping, measuring and marking, and traditional stitching techniques, using pearl cotton and metallic threads. Those with experience will be introduced to new, challenging geometric patterns and ideas to expand your skills. All will be inspired and encouraged to experiment with colors and different-sized balls as well, and could take home as many as three completed balls, plus a few to finish at home.
Judith T. Yamamoto enjoyed her Beginning Weaving class at Sievers in 1981 so much that she just kept coming back for more. Now Judie teaches and lectures nationally, and writes about weaving and related topics for magazines. Notable for their use of color and blending, her woven work, polymer clay jewelry and Temari have been featured in Handwoven magazine and seen at a variety of fiber shows, galleries and shops.No tags for this post.
