Learn how to make a woven wall hanging using simple materials – yarn, a tapestry needle, some cardboard, and a fork! You will first learn how to create an easy loom out of cardboard, then learn how to weave, change yarns, and make some different patterns.
Take a stroll with an expert forager and see what we can find! We will explore medicinal, culinary and other possibilities for what’s growing this time of year. This will take place in Rockland County – the exact meetup location will be emailed to registrants.
