In this four-hour introduction to weaving, you’ll learn to use yarn to create a woven piece featuring Yosemite scenery. With guidance and encouragement from your instructor, tapestry expert Myla Collier, you’ll use colored yarns to translate an image, called a cartoon, into a physical object on a loom. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have a piece of woven artwork to take home and a unique memory from your Yosemite experience.
