Knitting and Crochet Workshops

Eastern Jewels Crochet Retreat with Lucia Dunn

We are holding a weekend Crochet Workshop at Poppy’s Retreat with Lucia Dunn on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November.

A whole weekend of relaxation, crochet and fun. 

Originally from Italy, and now resident in Scotland, Lucia studied Architecture at University in Venice and has years of experience with fabrics, interior design, colour and crochet !

In collaboration with Jane Crowfoot, designer of the original Persian Tiles Blanket pattern, Lucia has put together a fantastic new colourway called Eastern Jewels, this will be the focus of the planned workshop at Poppy’s.

Lucia will explain how she chose the new colour pallette with some of her favourite colour references and shapes, and how she worked with the neutral colours in the design, as well some technical tips for putting together the various motifs.

The session will be interactive and you will be encouraged to bring some samples of your favourite colours, perhaps some of your crochet work or any pictures or items that have inspired you in terms of colour or shapes for discussion with the Lucia and the group.


As well as the main project there will be time to experiment with a wide range of sample yarns to explore working with different colour combinations, weights, styles and wools and acrylic mixes.

Numbers are limited so that everyone will have the opportunity for some one to one time with Lucia.

It promises to be a great weekend with lots to talk about and plenty of time to relax and crochet in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.

£130 per person
