As you know, at UCC we are all about building crafting into your everyday life and making most of every opportunity to get your craft on. However, once in a while it would be nice to take some time out and really immerse yourself in crafting.
There are lots and lots of great craft based holidays out there and here are our top 3 ideas across the world:
1. Visit www.craftybreaks.com to see the best Wales has to offer in all things crafty. You can take workshops in pottery and ceramics, glass painting, felt making and mosaics to name but a few all amid the beautiful Welsh countryside.
2. On the other side on the world, a slightly different approach is offered by the craft retreat near Melbourne (www.thecraftretreat.com.au). Rather than offering classes, it provides a base for you and your friends to dedicate yourself to crafting. There is a fully equipped studio – just bring your supplies and off you go.
3. And finally, something very exotic. How about a painting holiday in India? www.basunti.com offers 12 day painting holidays in one of the world’s most beautiful locations. They also offer yoga, birdwatching and fishing so there is a little something for everyone!
So if you fancy a holiday with a difference, why not try a crafty one? Makes a change from the usual and you’ll come home with a new or improved skill rather than just sunburn!
