A fun, single-day event. See your wall hanging develop as you add ribbons, beads and scraps of textiles to your woven base. You will learn how to prepare a simple wooden frame adding the warp threads which will then be the base for your weft — the threads which are used to weave the background support for your piece of fibre art. According to your personal preference you will be able to attach various decorative details such as coloured ribbons and unusual yarns made available to you during the creative session.

Some of you may not be aware that Boho Shack is very closely linked to the events’ company, ‘Creative Retreats in Italy’ which is based in Venice, Italy. In actual fact, most of the events organised by Creative Retreats, actually take place in Venice which is the adopted home of the company founder and operator, Janys Hyde.
The workshops offer a wide range of creative activities to small groups of English speaking adults (and not only) who come from many different locations to take part. Just by way of an example, the past few months have seen us offering creative writing, watercolour painting, painting on silk, the creation of Christmas wreaths and urban sketching around the streets of Venice.
If these kinds of workshop might be of interest to you, do sign up for our newsletter to be among the first to hear about the proposed calendar of forthcoming events. You will find details of events on www.creativeretreatsinitaly.com and occasionally available through our Etsy shop.
Looking forward to meeting you at some time in the future!
When you buy something from an artist, you are buying more than an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experiments. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are not only buying a thing, but a piece of heart, a part of the soul, a moment in the life of someone.
