Story-making with Yarn *FULLY BOOKED*

Yarn is built by a team of educators, parents and technologists who are on a mission to foster self-directed play, a love of storytelling and intrinsic motivation to learn in kids around the world. Our first product is an AI-powered interactive storybook creation platform, which can be used by children as young as 4 years old. The yarn workshop uses craft, drawing and tactile exploration to facilitate story-making, allowing children to upload images of their creations to begin a personalised story within our app. Feel free to take it for a spin to get a sense of the experience.
