Okay, nothing is set in stone yet, even the dates, but... there's a very real possibility that I might teach a week long course in using landscape, local color, and architecture to design knitwear in Umbria, Italy. Maybe next spring. The course would take place in Todi, Italy, with classes in the morning and afternoon trips to assorted visually stunning locations for inspiration (including to Assisi). We'd be staying in a hotel that used to be a monastery. The classes would be in English (since I don't speak Italian), and it would be marketed strongly to UK and European knitters.
That sounds pretty amazing, no?
Without knowing any more about it, and certainly not committing yourselves to an overseas trip, the planners wanted to know if any US or Canadian knitters might also be interested. As I said, we have no firm info yet, this is just a general question. All comments welcome.
So, anyone up for a trip to the Italian countryside for an intensive week of knitwear design classes?
Here are a few pictures to pique your interest (note: all of these pictures came from Yahoo and Google search- none had attributions. If you know who took them, please let me now so I can add that info).
