Yarnbombing 101

  • Urban Bazaar 1371 9th Ave San Francisco, CA, 94122 United States

Make Street Art with Yarn!

Do you have a basic knowledge of knitting or crochet (knit, purl, double crochet) and want to learn to take your ideas to the next level with yarnbombing? This all-ages class will take you through the process with a collaborative yarnbomb, from choosing a site to design and construction. Try your hand at a hand-crank knitting machine, learn about the history of yarnbombing, and maybe even form your new crew!

Together we’ll dream up a class yarnbomb for Urban Bazaar’s huge backyard, but bring your other pipe dreams for feedback. You’ll leave with a yarnbombing kit including knitting needles, a crochet hook, measuring tape, tapestry needle, and scissors. Taught by Knits for Life and The Dapper Toad, the creators of the Monster Benches at the Ferry Building and the Squid Tree in San Mateo.

COST: $40 + $15 materials fee
