Wrap up the weekend with a workshop all about wrapping and winding yarn to make slithery snakes or the softest of scarves. Knowledgeable knitter and owner of South End based Bead + Fiber Larissa will guide aspiring fiber artists ages 6–10 through the process of knitting with a loom, a kid tested handheld device perfect for easy knitting projects. Participants will leave with fundamental knitting knowledge, a loom for later exploration, and a handmade creation of their own.

She received a BFA in Fashion Design from Syracuse University in 2013, and has worked in the retail world ever since.
