With Yoriko Yamamoto


Tuesday, May 17th

6:00pm - 8:00pm 

San Francisco Waldorf School


Learn the Japanese folk art of Temari (手まり) ball making! Temari (hand-ball) was originally made in many households for children’s play. The stitch adornments traditionally carry well wishes and good omens, which will be discussed in class. The Temari are made with naturally dyed (by Yoriko) cotton thread and rice husks. Yoriko will bring in colors mostly made from San Francisco Bay Area plants.
This project is great for people with no sewing experience to advanced sewers. All are welcome!
