Yarn paintings are created by pressing wool yarns onto a beeswax covered board. The fibres of the yarn ‘stick’ to the beeswax using the blunt end of a knitting needle or chopstick, creating a beautiful piece of art. It is believed that yarn painting originated with the Huicholes, an Indigenous group from western Mexico whose history dates back 15,000 years.
