TEMARI ORNAMENTS with Samuel Buelow
Temari is the ancient Japanese folk art of making brightly colored, intricately designed, thread wrapped and embroidered balls, which happen to make elegant ornaments. Temari are believed to bestow happiness and are often given as a cherished gift, symbolizing deep friendship, and loyalty. The brilliant colour and threads and intricate designs are symbolic, wishing the recipient a brilliant life. In this class we will make traditional Temari style wrapped thread balls and embroider them. Supplies will be provided to make 2 balls, one to finish in class and one to finish at home. No previous experience with Temari or embroidery is required.

Samuel Buelow grew up in Los Alamos, NM and has been interested in the arts from a young age. In college and graduate school he focused in fiber arts (knitting, crochet, weaving, felting, and embroidery). His work has been featured several times at the Fuller
Lodge Art Center, where he has shown temari earrings and ornaments and whimsical knit and crochet figures.
