Knitting and Crochet Retreat

with Joanne Scrace and Kat Goldin of The Crochet Project and Rachel Coopey of Coop Knits.

This retreat in the beautiful Scottish countryside will give you a chance to relax, recharge, make new friends, connect with old friends and improve your knitting and crochet skills. A full class schedule with choices for each session make this suitable for beginners to advanced knitters and crocheters.

There will be opportunities to expand your knitting and crochet skills with classes taught by Joanne, Rachel and Kat on a range of topics including making garments that fit, knitting your new favourite socks, using a magic loop, and a knit and crochet surgery where you can bring your projects that you are stuck on and we can help get you back on track. We will also be firing up Kat's dye pots, heading out to forage (for those who want to) and enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. There will also be plenty of opportunity to relax, chat and stitch away. 

Price includes three nights full board accommodation in a shared twin room, all trips and classes, basic materials and a goodie bag.  Accommodation is over four joined cottages just down from Kat's farm.  Workshops will take place across the both at the cottages and up at Kat's. 

Transport to the venue not included (but transfers Stirling train station can be arranged).

Please note: the retreat is held on a working farm with lots of free-range animals.
