Saturday & Sunday, June 7 & 8
Local artist Malia Matsumoto will be facilitating a yarn-based workshop, where participants can aid in the creation of her future C street Sculpture in Eureka. Learn to make pom-poms, weave and wrap forms, and hear about her previous yarn-based installation in the Creamery district. The installation of SCRAP Humboldt’s “yarn bomb” by local artist, Sierra Leash of Crafty Gigs, will be installed during that weekend as well.
