Thank you for your interest in the Lacemaking Holiday in Tuscany with Carole Smith. This is an opportunity for lacemakers of all levels to join together for a week of stitching in the beautiful Villa Cheli at the foot of the Pisan hills.
Carole will be providing 30 hours of tuition split between 3-hour morning and afternoon sessions over 5 days. The studio is well-equipped with natural light, worktables, magnifying lamps, and air conditioning. Villa Cheli also has an outdoor pool for relaxation after an enjoyable day of making lace.
The Italian chefs at Villa Cheli will create dishes suited to each class, taking into consideration any dietary requests. Menus are designed to excite your palate and give a taste of the local cuisine.
Nadine & Mark will be available to assist you throughout the booking process and your stay, from airport transfers to dietary needs.
During the week, there is one day set aside for an excursion to Pisa, where a guided city tour has been arranged. After the tour, you will have the rest of the day to explore the city and its iconic tower.
This is a great opportunity to join like-minded people, make friendships, and learn and share techniques from each other and the teacher. Don't miss out on this unforgettable lacemaking holiday in the Tuscan Hills.
