Aphrodite's Felted Jacket Creation 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 1-10, 2024.
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.
During 5.5 days workshop, you will create an outfit with sawing sleeves. Students will learn how to take measurements, make a template, and calculate shrinking as well as learning how to make a felt jacket double-breast. In addition, students will learn how to make straight edges, the three-dimensional product on a flat template, using felt technologies. Moreover, participants will learn how to easily transform the template from a jacket into a comfortable dress with pockets or a coat.
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.
Take a moment to relax...Within retreat, you will attend one of the best hammam spa in old town of Nicosia city. In addition, our program includes time on the coast with the opportunity to experience the Mediterranean Sea in velvet season.
Cyprus is known for its spiritual places, which are visited by people from all over the world. Together we will experience the depth of spiritual culture and visit sacred places.
Try the best of what Aphrodite's Island could offer! Together, we'll taste traditional Cypriot cuisine, treat ourselves to freshly caught fish, and enjoy halloumi, the island's signature cheese.
