Aphrodite Felting Retreat
Are you seeking the perfect getaway? Willing to craft felting masterpieces and have an unforgettable experience? We have something special for you!
We are pleased to invite you to a 10-day felting retreat in Cyprus, the land of love and beauty.
The next retreat will take place in October 10-19th, 2023.
Explore the history of Cyprus. During our trip we will explore the history of Cyprus, visit the old city of the capital and walk around the ruins of an ancient palace. We will discover the hidden architectural gems and cultural heritage of the Greeks.
In this workshop, I set the task of creating a balance in the use of different materials in one product.
Felting workshop 'VEST or sleeveless TUNIC'
During the retreat, you will attend a 3.5 day workshop and create your own felted vest or sleeveless tunic design. When we try to add materials that initially seem incompatible to us, we frequently encounter difficulties. Throughout the workshop, you will learn how to find balance and by combining various techniques with elegant fine fabrics and natural raw wool, the finished product will be cozy, balanced, and not overstuffed.All levels of experience are welcome, but knowledge of basic feltmaking and a curiosity in exploring new ideas is essential.
We will explore and learn how Lefkara lace is created. The tradition of lace-making dates back to at least the fourteenth century. Influenced by indigenous craft, the embroidery of Venetian courtiers and ancient Greek and Byzantine geometric patterns, Lefkara lace is made by hand in designs combining four basic elements: the hemstitch, cut work, satin stitch fillings and needlepoint edgings. The practice is passed down from mothers to daughters and today is protected by UNESCO.
Body and soul care
