(603) All About Japanese Temari

LECTURE included in the Conference Pass. Join us to learn all about the Japanese art of embroidered thread balls. You’ll hear about the history of this art form, as well as the current state of the art in the world today. Find out what’s inside those temari, and all about how they are made. Hear about some of the iconic patterns that are traditionally used, as well as some more modern amazing works of thread art. Your eyes will be treated to oodles of colorful examples. So bring your questions and come get hooked on the art of Japanese temari!

Many photos of temari, both stitched by the lecturer as well as other published works, will be shared. Of special interest is the use of color theory and color play, as well as some more mathematical topics, but no advanced knowledge or excitement about these subjects is required. Q&A will be moderated, but questions are encouraged!
