Perhaps you’ve seen these colorful, diamond-shaped weavings in Mexico or remember making them with popsicle sticks as a child. If you’re not yet familiar, God’s eyes or ojos de Dios are decorative weavings that originate from the Huichol community in Western Mexico. This meditative craft is formed by crossing two wooden dowels and wrapping colorful yarn around them in a repeated pattern to create the God’s eye’s signature graduating diamond shapes. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to begin your weaving, how to create the God’s eye weaving pattern, how to change yarn colors, and finally, how to add simple yarn embellishments such as criss-crosses and tassels to jazz up your woven creation. Truly a Neon Tea Party favorite, we think you’ll love this calming craft as much as we do!
