Travel Leaving the crowds behind, you will be surprised to discover Ancona and the beautiful Marche Region. An unspoiled place where you can discover something different in each season. You will taste ancient recipes, meet artisans and learn centuries old traditions. Ancona was founded by the Greeks, with the name coming from the word for “ Elbow.” Ancona is the perfect place to stay, learn, and enrich yourself with our professional textile and embroidery course.

The stay: You can choose to stay in a wonderful property with your family and friends, immersed in the nature and greenery of Marche. Alternatively, stay in a hotel in the centre of Ancona surrounded by the city’s ancient history.

The Learn: You will learn how to use your hands and appreciate the importance of dexterity and time. When creating something from scratch – using the raw materials, your own hands and creativity – you will understand that quality can only be obtained with time and attention to detail. Satisfaction will be gained in valuing the quality of the art produced.

The retreat takes place at a textile workshop, where furnishing and utility artefacts are designed and made through creative repurposing.

During the course, a selection of handicrafts will be presented to chose from which can inspire the choice of textile object to be made.

You will choose the fabrics and recycled materials to be used for your artefact. Fragments of lace and antique embroidery will be available. Sewing machines can be used for assembly. You will have the opportunity to use traditional Italian embroidery stitches, and learn about the final phase of construction.
