What you will do

4 hour class

Daytime

Temari Balls are beautiful, intricate embroidered thread balls. The range of designs and colours are endless! Temari needlecrafts originate from China but were brought to Japan centuries ago.

Like many complex, symmetrical items, they look impossible to create...but once you have learned the techniques you will get the knack and end up in an addictive, creative new world bounded only by your imagination!

Using a needle and thread, the theme is to create a structure which is then filled in to create a stunning pattern.

You teacher provides all the tools you will need: needles, multiple thread colours and the inner workings of the balls! All will be revealed!

  • The class size is small (max 8), so there will be plenty of time for one to one tuition at your level of ability and confidence
  • These classes are intended to be relaxing, mindful and a charming creative escape from modern day life. You will feel a great sense of wellbeing from escaping the smartphone for a few hours and focusing your innate creativity

What you’ll take away from this class

  • All the techniques to create your own stunning Temari Ball. Depending on the complexity of your design, you will finish your design at the class, or can complete it at home
  • These classes are intended to be a mindful, noncompetitive and creative experience, so it is expected that you’ll leave the classes with a sense of achievement and a bigger smile than you walked in with
  • You’ll receive a lovely guidebook as an aide memoir to help you carry on working at home

Many of Ubie's students say they could never create something as apparently difficult as that. Well, you can !! You just need to know the tips and tricks of how and therefore the course is suitable for all levels of ability!

Ubie has taught well over 500 students on our Mandala and symmetrical design classes and everyone has produced a super piece of work to display and a sense of accomplishment of I made that.... & of course once you have learned the techniques and got the bug you can produce many more lovely creations in your own time. : )

Learn to stitch a Temari Ball! by UbieDesign - crafts in London

About your host, UbieDesign

UbieDesign was established by designer, Ubie Chan in London in 2017.

Ubie hails from Hong Kong and relocated to the UK in 2017. She is a qualified graphic designer and ran an art and craft studio and shop in Hong Kong for many years.

Ubie's classes in Mandala Drawing and Painting have been a 'big hit' with our students being amazed in the beautiful work they can create in a short period of time in a very relaxing, mindful and creative environment. We have recently launched our new class Mandotla and more will be coming in 2019!

Ubie's mantra is "Anyone can draw!!" and she will demonstrate this in a smaller class environment (typically no more than 8 students) with lots of time for 1-2-1 tuition at your level of skill and confidence / experience level in drawing and art!
