Aimed at students who have already had an introduction to Temari (Japanese embroidered string balls), this class offers new techniques and ideas, with a concentration on the patterns of the “complex 10-division.” Exploring just some of the possibilities of this challenging geometric pattern will keep you busy for the three days of class and well beyond. You’ll 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.
