Macro Yubinuki with Tracy Purtscher
Yubinuki are Japanese thimbles with a centuries old history and rich tradition. Akin in concept to Tamari Balls, it is the cross layering of colorful threads that creates the beautiful geometric designs and traditionally worked in fine silk threads,

Students will learn Yubinuki history while combining this ancient technique with modern materials, in a much larger scale, to create their own thimble, ring, or bangle bracelet

Note: Basic knowledge of buttonhole stitch or blanket stitch is helpful.
