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 October and November Lucia will be exploring the art of crochet planning, creating mood boards, selecting yarn, making test swatches and choosing and using the different colour combinations.
There will be plenty of sample yarn to experiment with, and a Kit or equivalent voucher to spend in the Studio Shop is included as well.
This intermediate level course will be based on creating a blanket, cushion or a shawl, places are limited to allow everyone to have some personal tuition time with Luica.
The sessions 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.
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.
Please note overnight accomodation is not included but there are several Hotels and Bed and Breakfast establishments in the surrounding area.
