Gee, I’m so fortunate to go on not one but two road trips this month (and even more fortunate to get back from Mary Quant before Victoria’s lockdown).
On the weekend, my daughter and I went to Knit-Spin-Weave‘s inaugural Fibre Craft Retreat. Neither of us had been on a craft retreat before.
The venue was Hummocks Station, near Snowtown in South Australia’s mid north. Hummocks is a sheep station, operating breeding flocks, and they also have accommodation. It’s about a 50 minute drive from our house.
Hummocks has recently started producing knitting wool from their own sheep.
Here’s a few scenes from the weekend….
It was an absolutely lovely weekend. About 30 people came, all like-minded and craft-loving. There was weaving, nalbinding, glass painting, eco botanical dyeing, a sit ‘n’ sew hosted by moi, show-and-tell, a campfire and plenty of nice things to eat. There was a great friendly vibe.
Hummocks was an excellent spot. The welcome was warm and the facilities were drop-your-toothbrush-on-the-floor clean.
