Teachers Class 2018 Registration is open!
Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>
Teachers Class 2018 schedule: October 22-25, 2018
(Optional stitching day: October 26, 2018)
New phase 8 fuzzy effect technique theme "Kemari"
The new design is inspired by a black, formal kimono, named “Spring of Kemari”, which was created a long time ago by Master Iwao Saito. Kemari is a ball game that was popular among nobles during the Heian Period. The ball or footbag is considered an elegant motif, which is used for kimono and obi. You might find it is interesting to see kemari among other formal motifs such as cypress fans, drums, noble carts, phoenix, cranes, etc. We will reveal the history behind the kemari this fall.
Fuzzy effect is applied on many varieties of designs, and we would like to explain its character, the basic techniques, as well as its creative aspects. We will also display kimono and obi examples that were stitched in the past.
Please note that tentative thread set will be posted as soon as it is available. Also, finalized thread set and boxchart will be available during the class.
During the class, we will also be mentioning about the guidance for class operation and future teaching materials.
Please look forward to it!
