Take a crochet holiday with us!
How do you fancy a holiday that’s dedicated to crochet? We’ve teamed up with Arena Travel to offer amazing trips with top crochet tutors and workshops, plus a chance to experience the yarn traditions around the world.
If you like the sound of a crochet holiday, check out the trip ‘Knit & Crochet in the West of Ireland’ with Carol Meldrum. It’s taking place from 7th – 12th October 2018, and you’ll spend five nights exploring the stunning scenery of County Clare.
You’ll have time to discover the handmade traditional Irish clothing, crafts and yarns, Aran sweaters and sheep farming, with magnificent views across the Atlantic coastline.
You’ll also take part in two crochet workshops, covering Irish Crochet, and knitting workshops for cable knitting, with expert tutor Carol Meldrum.
As well as workshops, there’s plenty of excursions and attractions to keep you busy. You’ll visit the Sheep and Wool Centre, which offers an insight into the importance of textiles to Connemara’s past. Take a trip to Kylemore Abbey, a neo-gothic house that dates back to 1868 and features a miniature cathedral. And if that’s not enough, you can jump aboard a “tractor-drawn” tour of Innis Oirr, the smallest of the Aran Islands.
The tour runs from 7th October – 12th October 2018 and prices start from £1,259. You can find out more about this Arena holiday here.
