Toward the end of last year, I had the opportunity to take a workshop class on very beginning temari. The ball on the right is the result. And I was hooked! Bought rice hulls and began looking at temarikai.com and several books. Even began making balls for decorating.
Then this spring Shining Needle Society announced an online course with Barbara Seuss (www.japanesetemari.com). The instructions and pics were online and it came with a kit of materials for making the class ball and 2 companion balls. Finally finished the class ball (ball on left). GREAT class! The project really walks you through lots of the beginning designs and concepts. I will do the challenge pieces - eventually - when time permits.
I have also signed up for the EGA Correspondence Course with Barb. It was last months online group course (your group is all the people who sign up with you online and the group fee is waived). The instruction folder has arrived. Let the wrapping begin!
