A Few Spots Left

This Crafty Sicilian Fibre Arts & Wellness Retreat is dedicated to quality time with like-minded people, mindfulness and creativity.

Let the sun caress your skin as you drink in the incredible views from the deck of our villa in Sicily. Sip wine and swap yarns and patterns with other adventurous crafty practitioners filled with gratitude for the exquisite journey. Half of the days will be dedicated to crafting and another half to exploring the fabulous surroundings combined with wellness practices.

Our retreat is open for all levels of crafters and yoga practitioners. Beginner knitters and crocheters will receive all the help and encouragement needed to leave with a newfound skill and more seasoned fibre artists can dedicate their time on bringing their handcrafted creations to life at our private luxurious villa.

Getting crafty

The retreat guests are welcome to bring their own projects to the retreat or come completely unprepared as we will provide a choice of yarns, patterns and tools for all levels to choose from. Each participant will also receive a crafty goody bag.

Before the retreat we will get in touch with different ideas for the projects at the retreat so that everyone can focus on what they really want to craft and on improving their skills.
