Knitting & Crochet weekend in Bournemouth - 19th November - 1st December 2019
The weekend will start with drinks, a meal and informal introductions and over the course of the weekend you will be offered the chance to relax at a spa, wander around town and Christmas Market, visit the local art gallery and of course knit and crochet.
Debbie and Jane make great tutors with a long history of teaching and they really enjoy working alongside eachother to create fun and informative workshops. They will each design a small project for you to work through over the course of the weekend and will be on hand to guide you through an array of techniques, typically including beading and colour work. If you would rather bring along and work through your own project surrounded my like minded people please feel free to do so.
Marsham Court Hotel
Edging the beautiful Dorset coast and sparkling sea, the Marsham Court Hotel Bournemouth is a relaxing full-service hotel. A refreshing blend of contemporary design and friendly seaside ambiance, the hotel offers a welcoming retreat for groups and family holidays. Experience a haven of hospitality and impeccable service and stunning views across Bournemouth bay.
We have chosen this hotel as it is situated on the coastal cliff road in Bournemouth, just a 5 minute walk from the golden beaches and directly opposite the Russell Cotes Museum/art gallery and a couple of health spas.
Please be aware that some of the Sea View rooms can be quite cool during the winter months. The Hotel do provide extra heating and bedding, but we know that some people have found the rooms chilly in the past, but we also know that some people prefer a cooler room! If you do book a Sea View room it might be worth bringing some extra clothing for night wear.
This year the weekend workshop coincides with the Bournemouth Christmas market. We think this looks like a lot of fun and will make the weekend feel even more festive than usual. You can find out more information about the market HERE.
If you fancy a bit of a pampering during your free time there are two health spas within a 5 minute walk from the hotel.
The Spindles spa is in the grounds of the Royal Bath Hotel and the entrance is just across the road from the Marsham Court Hotel. To view the spa CLICK HERE
The Forever Gorgeous Spa can be found at the Queens Hotel and you can see details by CLICKING HERE
A project yarn pack will be available for you to work through during the weekend. In the past, most workshop participants do choose to work on the project, but it is not compulsory. We are more than happy if you would prefer to bring your own WIP and work on that instead in a friendly environment surrounded by like minded people.
Non Workshop Participants
If you would like to bring along a non workshop participant to share your room then purchase a Double/Twin room with single occupancy supplement and then contact us.
Your partner will be entitled to the sparkling wine reception, breakfast, lunch, dinner and the tea & coffee during the day.
There are plenty of things in Bournemouth to keep a partner busy while you are in the workshop.
