NEW CRAFT! The Japanese word "Te-Mari" translates as "hand-ball." What began as a child's toy in ancient Japan has evolved into a revered art form. Temari were made from discarded kimono threads, wrapped tightly around a core of wadded fabric, paper or rice hulls. Today, Temari are given as gifts of happiness and joy for special occasions. Instructor Lolly Buxton has traveled in Japan and has studied under a Japanese temari artist. She warns that making these lovely gifts is quite addicting! Each class session meets twice for two hours each.
