Temari is also a traditional Japanese needlework technique. About eight years ago Ted and I took an introductory pre-beginner temari class at the NCSU Japan Center with teacher Barbara Suess. This is the ball I made. Unfortunately, Ted’s did not make it to Japan.
My friend Katherine taught a temari class at a guild meeting, but so far I haven’t finished that one.
Recently there was an article on RocketNews24 about a 92 year old woman who learned temari in her 60’s. Check out the article and photos here. Her work is incredible!
