French Treats Knitting Holiday with Fiona Morris
A relaxing week of workshops, yarns, creativity, trips, fun and much more…
This year Fiona will be covering a number of techniques including Knitting with Beads in Lace (Shetland Lace), techniques for making a traditional Gansey (mini sample), Bias/Directional Knititng and Beautiful Buttonholes. There will also be the opportunity to take part in a number of excursions as well as informal evening activities such as ‘Relax and Knit’ and ‘Show and Tell’
The holiday takes place in the beautiful retreat of Le Vieux Monastere, a monastery dating back to the 12th century. Set in the sunny Charente Maritime between La Rochelle and Cognac, this is a perfect setting for promoting creativity and a sense of well-being. The workshops form part of an inclusive programme which provides a complete and relaxing holiday experience.
Guests are accommodated in the luxurious cottages, and meals consist of breakfast, lunch and dinner with wine included, except on excursions.
Costs: £800 including accommodation, airport transfers, full board, all workshops and excursions. The cost excludes travel to La Rochelle. If you prefer to have a single room rather than sharing with someone else there is a single room supplement of £75.
French Treats Knitting Retreat
‘Due to the popularity of the French Treats Knitting week in June we are exploring the possibility of running a 2nd week in September if there is sufficient interest. The week would be based on Fiona providing one to one assistance with individual projects in the morning, leaving the afternoons to relax and knit. If you weren’t able to make the June holiday, Fiona will provide the handouts from the workshops featured, and will be able to demonstrate some of the techniques covered. As usual the week will be fully catered and will include some excursions.’
