Temari Class

Susan Watts has been teaching Temari for 34 years at Nichi Bei Busan in San Jose and learned Temari in Japan. Temari are Japanese thread balls used in handball games or displayed as art. They originated from Kemari (a football/kickball game) in China around the 7th century. The Temari class originated when Alice Tatsuno, Arlene’s mother, promoted bunka shishu (Japanese embroidery) and was certified in Japan as an instructor around the late 1970’s to early 1980’s. ¬†Picture L-R (Rosana Lillo, student 9 years, Elma Meulema, student 1st year,¬†Arlene Tatsuno Damron owner of Nichi Bei Busan), and Susan Watts.
