2020 Knitting holiday programme

Each of our knitting holidays at The Watermill at Posara, Tuscany, enjoys SEVEN nights at the watermill, with full board.

We should emphasise that absolutely EVERYTHING is included in the cost of your holiday: tuition and patterns for knitting projects (except on the knitting retreat), accommodation (including all linen and towels), pre-dinner aperitifs, all meals (including delicious meals with wine prepared specially for you at the mill, and at charming local restaurants) and local transportation (including transfers to Pisa airport; an excursion by train to Lucca or the Cinque Terre).

All you have to do is get to Pisa (and bring your needles!): we do the rest!

2020 Programme

15 - 22 AUGUST

Louisa Harding - Knitting Tutor

Renée Callahan

"Knitting and La Bella Vita"

Renée Callahan is a prolific knitwear designer from London in England, who loves to combine texture and colour to create hand-knit patterns that are enjoyable to knit and remain wearable for years to come. She is really looking forward to her first visit to the Watermill. She says: “I am already planning some wonderful projects for the students, which will give us the opportunity to try out new techniques, such as brioche and slipped stitch patterns.”

As ever, your knitting week at the Watermill will combine expert tuition, like-minded company, wonderful food and the delightful ambience of the Watermill, it's gardens and riverside walks, and outings into the surrounding unspoiled Tuscan countryside of Lunigiana.
