Temari – International Temari Appreciation Day 2011

July 13, 2011

La Journee internationale des temari, c’est le 22 octobre 2011! Cette tradition artisanale et domestique d’origine japonaise se trouve partout – au Japon bien sur, mais aussi en Europe, aux Etats-Unis, meme ici en Australie. Cet art oriental de broder la surface d’une balle, on les fait de soie mais plus souvent en coton perle. Ces balles sont simples et aussi complexes. Toutes les celebrations sur http://international-temari-appreciation.blogspot.com

Si sta avvicinando La Giornonata internazionale d’apprezzamento des temari – il 22 ottobre 2011! Come ogni anno, i sito ITAD e’ lieto di invitare tutti della communita’ “temari” a partecipare alla questa giornata internazionale. In questo periodo, le palle giapponesi, questa tradizione artigiana giapponese si trova dappertutto, una larga diffusione tra tutti in Giappone, in Europa, negli Stati-Uniti, anche in Australia. Le palle si cuciono di seta o di cotone perla. Queste palle giapponesi hanno i motivi semplici o involuti. Vi invito inoltre a visiare http://international-temari-appreciation.blogspot.com per le celebrazioni virtuali di questa giornata internazionale.

It’s that time again, folks, when those of us all round the world do our bit to publicise and celebrate the rather addictive embroidering of thread-wound balls via the International Day of Temari Appreciation. Originally a domestic folk art of largely unknown origins in Japan, it has now spread amongst gentlefolk in every corner of the globe. While the most elaborate ones are stitched in silk, the humbler Pearl Cotton is used far and wide, replicating the simplest designs of yore as well as contemporary “extreme temari” of blindingly complex patterning. If you’re intrigued by this tradition, or have been journeying along the paths of the Japanese elders already, get in touch with other temari-makers, spread the word among embroidery colleagues and take a moment on 22 October to acknowledge the past as well as make a wish for the art’s future!
