Beginners will learn the basics of Temari: wrapping, measuring and marking, and traditional stitching with pearl cotton and metallic threads, then go on to the ‘Wraps’ portion. Experienced students will start by preparing and marking simple division balls to use for wrapped design techniques. Expect to finish 2 – 4 balls during class.
