The Japan Creative Centre, Embassy of Japan and Japan Temari Association are pleased to present an exhibition on Temari (a traditional Japanese embroidered ball). Be fascinated by the creativity in both traditional and original Temari designs. In addition, workshops will be held over the course of the exhibition period, where participants can try their hand at making this beautiful handicraft. All necessary tools and materials will be provided.

About the Exhibition

Temari started as a pastime, a toy for women and young girls in Japan, dating back to more than a thousand years ago (in the middle of the seventh century). Many regions in Japan have preserved their characteristic Temari. The fascination of Temari lies in the gorgeous beauty of the coloured threads, woven into geometric patterns around the spheres. This brings forth a contemplative atmosphere. Come and see more than 100 unique designs of these colourful Temari. These will include the Temari artists’ original creations which utilise traditional skills, as well as distinct designs from different prefectures of Japan.
