Taos Valley Poncho

by Marie Greene

Ring in the New Year with designer Marie Greene this immersive 4-week virtual KAL and workshop! The Taos Valley Poncho explores a series of knitting techniques, and attendees will have access to video tutorials as the project progresses.

More than that, this workshop also includes destination-based adventures with Marie! Learn to make tamales (yes, for real!), visit Taos Pueblo, the only living Native American community that is both a UNESCO World Heritage site and a National Historic Landmark, and discover the mystical allure of this glorious part of the United States as you knit at your own pace. This virtual event includes over 3.5 hours of video content, plus so much more!

The 4-week journey begins on December 28th and continues through January, 2024.
