The theme for ExBo 2023 is water.

As part of ExBo 2023, we have invited Anne Farrell to teach a yarn painting class. You will learn the basics by creating a small yarn painting tile in the theme of water which will be added to our community display and then you will progress to your own unique piece to take home.

The yarn/wool is recycled/repurposed. Different textures, colours and gauges of wool will be used to create a water landscape.
