Temari (手まり) Ball Workshop in Brooklyn, NY

 Learn the Japanese folk art of Temari (手まり) ball making in this full-day workshop! Temari (hand-ball) was originally made in many households for children's play. The stitched adornments carry well wishes and good omens. They are traditionally gifted to others as a sign of valued friendship.

 As you learn Temari Ball assembly and pattern making, you will have the opportunity to connect deeply with sustainably sourced materials that have been thoughtfully collected and curated by our teacher, Yoriko. Many have shifted away from natural materials for the sake of convenience, but Yoriko's approach recenters this tradition in impermanence, mindfulness, and quality.The maker's kit, which you will work with and take home with you, includes threads that have been naturally dyed by Yoriko with colors harvested near her home in the San Francisco Bay Area. The balls themselves will be made with organic rice husks that Yoriko sources from a local farm.

This particular Temari style requires intermediate sewing skills, but fear not if you're a novice—Yoriko will guide you through simpler styles.
