We are delighted to announce that the celebrated knitter, designer and yarn producer Louisa Harding has agreed to join us for a second week at the Watermill. Her first week, in May, is completely sold out, so Louisa is coming to us again from Saturday 27 June to Saturday 4 July 2020. And already five people have booked in, and another two or three enquirers are in the pipeline!

If you would like to join Louisa and experience Knitting and La Bella Vita, now is the time to reserve your place on this relaxing and inspiring holiday in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. We promise you leisurely knitting days, wonderful food and wine and we know you will make new friends and learn new skills with a renowned designer.

Louisa worked for many years as an ‘in-house’ designer for Rowan Yarns. She has recently established a new brand, called Yarntelier, combining the finest yarns from the English county of Yorkshire with beautiful designs, to make each item a piece of hand-crafted couture.

Among the projects for each of her weeks is a cashmere shawl where you can draw on designs in the Tuscan countryside and incorporate them in your knitting.

And as ever, your knitting week at the Watermill will combine expert tuition, like-minded company, wonderful food and the delightful ambience of the Watermill, it’s gardens and riverside walks, and outings into the surrounding unspoiled countryside.

As one guest said: The Watermill is an idyllic setting for a knitting course – beautifully situated on the river, you are lulled to sleep in your comfortable room by the sound of the millstream. Bill and Lois are perfect hosts and your every need is catered for: good food and drink, and visits to local places of interest, including a convent, village market and a mountain-top restaurant.

Everything is included in the cost of your holiday at the watermill: tuition, accommodation, pre-dinner aperitifs, all meals and wines (including outings to charming local restaurants) and all local transportation.

You get to Pisa, Italy, we do the rest!

We have plenty of activities for non-knitting partners, which you can see by clicking here, and there’s a generous £250 (English pounds) discount if they share a room with you.

Come and knit with Louisa for creativity, conviviality – and fun!
