Temari, translated from Japanese, means “hand work”. The carefully hand-embroidered thread balls are often given as high-value gifts to loved ones and / or used as one-of-a kind decor. Not only are they admirable for their unique and beautiful designs, when one ventures into this craft, the meticulous but relaxing process will help anyone (especially the elderly) maintain a sharp mind, and lessening the chances of becoming forgetful; this craft technique is great for the brain. Join us in this brand-new session, where participants can begin their journey to be temari artists!

Though this skill requires specific training, Deepa, a certified Temari craftsman, will be going over all of the steps, simply, and at a good pace, so need to worry, everyone is invited to join! No prior embroidery/crafting experience necessary. Interested? Register now!

Session fee is P3,000. Participants will each be receiving a kit complete with all materials that will be used for the session. During the 3-hour session, students will be working on one Temari design, and will be bringing home another to work on as a take-home project.
