Fashion, Craft, and Food in Verona, Italy – Retreat

October 10 @ 8:00 am - October 19 @ 5:00 pm


Fashion, Craft, and Food Retreat in Italy
Verona, Italy

October 10th – 19th, 2023

Fashion, Textile Art, Food… what more could you hope to love! This year, we are adding more emphasis on mini workshops; some with locals and some with Susan. Topics will revolve around hand-techniques with fiber (Nuno felting), dyeing/printing (either Shibori or printing), sustainable design projects, and more. In addition, we will have fashion appointments that include visits to artisans, fabric and yarn stores, designers, and a knitting mill.

There will be two out-of-town trips. As always, we will take a trip to Venice and explore its sights and items related to textiles and fashion. We hope to attend an event call Abilmente (the Salon of Creative Ideas) which takes place in Vicenza, a city nearby. This event features exhibits, workshops, and vendors. At this time, the organizers have not announced their Fall dates. If we are not able to include Abilmente, we will move ahead and arrange a separate out of town trip to either Padua or Milan.

Here is a link to the flyer about our Italy trip. And here is a link for the Registration Form.
