We have just finished two back-to-back knitting weeks with our lovely new tutor Georgia Farrell. It was a great atmosphere on both weeks and our guests particularly seemed to enjoy being pulled out of their comfort zone by Georgiaâ€™s â€˜knitted collageâ€™ project, in which they clipped out architectural designs and shapes from magazines to make paper collages, which they translated into patterns — and then knitted them.
There were other projects too, and the results of the second groupâ€™s efforts can be seen in Gina Shearstonâ€™s video (above) of last nightâ€™s â€˜prosecco reception’ in the walled garden.
Many thanks to Georgia for her inspirational tuition and to the guests on both weeks for making them such enjoyable times.
Now we are looking forward to our old friend Randy Hale to lead another group painting en plein air in the glorious rural Tuscan countryside.
