Retreat with the Artisan in the Marche

Blessed with luscious green hills, untouched medieval villages, a unique heritage and stunning beaches along the Adriatic coast, Le Marche is surprisingly one of the least visited regions in Italy. Known for its Blue Flag beaches, pecorino cheese and bordering the republic of San Marino, Creative Italy can add another reason to visit Le Marche…

The bustling port city of Ancona, considered a gateway to the Adriatic, has plenty to keep the inquisitive visitor satisfied. Whether it’s a visit to the Roman amphitheatre, a trip to the archaeological museum or a walk up to the famous Catedrale di San Ciriaco, Ancona is also our chosen destination to enjoy a unique creative getaway.

Our Retreat

The retreat takes place at a textile workshop which has specialised in repurposing furniture for decades. At Creative Italy we continue to consider sustainability and our impact on the environment in selecting our retreats. It was a delight to discover a studio which places the focus on reusing and recycling. To reinvent furnishings and objects in this way is truly inspiring. You will learn how to preserve and utilise the various techniques and craftsmanship to create something new and unique.

For example you may choose to make tablecloth or pillowcase using fragments of antique embroidery, being guided on the traditional techniques and designs. Our expert artisan will show you how to incorporate these fragments of history into your piece, telling your own story in the most sustainable and inspiring way
