Calendar

Pattern dot dot dot

Unless stated otherwise, all general meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month from September to June, at 7:30 p.m.  Beth Emeth Bais Yehuda, 100 Elder Street.

A small group of members, The Guildees, meets every Tuesday afternoon in individual homes on a rotating basis to work on either group or individual projects.  All members are invited to join the Guildees.  For more information contact us.

After our celebratory 36th, what does the Pomegranate’s 2018/19 season hold in store?

More great monthly program nights, more intriguing techniques to explore, more inspiring artists to meet, more outreach opportunities and more special events, in other words, more of the same!

The precedent is set, so let’s repeat the fabulous.

Our theme this year is PATTERN dot, dot, dot. Which from a textile point of view covers a lot, so we added the dot, dot, dot. Our program will include hands on pattern making in 2 and 3-D with guest instructors; members sharing their particular skills; and a pattern challenge.

Does history repeat?

The commandment to affix a Mezuzah is widely followed in the Jewish world, even by Jews who are not religiously observant.

While the important part of the Mezuzah is the klaf (parchment), designing and producing Mezuzah cases has been elevated to an art form over the ages.

This is your opportunity to design and produce a one-of-a-kind Mezuzah case.

Wednesday, November 21, 2018 (3rd Week) TEMARI

Temari is thought to have its origin in kemari kickball game, introduced to Japan from China.

Then onna-mari (Lady ball) were made from silk thread by palace maidservants in competition to please their princesses.

When cotton became available during the 1600s, the common people were able to use the affordable fiber to spread the craft.  Children used temari to play tossing and juggling games.

The craft evolved from making homemade toys to works of art.

Please sign up on Eventbrite by Sunday, November 18th so we have the right amount of balls to decorate.
