Our adventure in Poland starts in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Kraków, before continuing to Zakopane, nestled in the foothills of the Tatra Mountains. Along with 3 full day workshops with Anna, you’ll take part in a workshop on design, spinning, weaving and dyeing of fabrics in Kraków, learn about wool processing in the Carpathian Mountains, and see a demonstration of crochet and embroidery techniques by local artists in Koscielisko village. We’ll also visit Zalipie, the most colourful village in Poland, and find inspiration for our projects in Koniakow, renowned for its crocheted lace.
I am delighted to be a tutor on this trip to my home country. Kraków has always had a very special place in my heart as it was one of my family’s favourite holiday destinations as a child. I cannot wait to share with you my beautiful home country, the designs and of course the delicious pierogi!
