The God’s Eye, or Ojo de Dios, is a sacred symbol of protection and an artisan weaving craft made from yarn and sticks, which originated in Mexico. Similar to a mandala, the repetitive motion of wrapping and weaving the yarn is as fun as it is soothing. Select your colors from a large inventory of yarn and make this craft uniquely yours!

To attend this session, please RSVP using the form below. Participants must be ages 14-18. Please note that for your safety, capacity for this event is extremely limited. Once capacity it met, you will have the opportunity to add yourself to a wait list. You will be contacted if a spot opens up.
