Spirit of Shetland Knitting Holiday – 31 Jul – 5 Aug 2024

31 July @ 8:00 am 5 August @ 5:00 pm

Discover the breathtaking Shetland Islands, whose past is interwoven with a rich history of wool, textiles and inimitable Fair Isle technique. On this 6-day holiday draw knitting inspiration from the coastlines and powerful landscapes, whose diverse colour pallet provides the perfect backdrop to your creative pastime. Learn how the world-famous Shetland wool is farmed, woven into yarn and then transformed by the locals into beautiful hand-crafted items. In the company of like-minded knitters, who share your passion for knitting, enjoy four half-day workshops. Under the professional guidance of the ‘World’s Fastest Knitter’ Hazel Tindall, and the ever-talented Kathleen Anderson, you’ll learn traditional Shetland Fair Isle and lace knitting techniques.

£1625 (if you join on Shetland). £1925 including flight
