This special workshop will be held at a unique home in Whitstable, Kent. I first went to The Battery at Seasalter when I was head designer at Rowan as I art directed three or four photography shoots there. The Battery is a private home and is often used as a photography location house, you would have seen the interior being used in Country Living, Coast and Country Homes and Interiors magazines, as well as my WINTER CROCHET book and in Rowan publications! This is an ‘one off’ opportunity to spend time in this exclusive historic building which sits on Whitstable beach and faces 120ft of secluded sea-front. During each day, The Battery will become our home from home and is not open to the general public at any time. This is a very extraordinary place and as soon as you step foot in this amazing house, you immediately relax and the wonderful hosts, Marilyn and Johnny make you feel very welcome. Marilyn is a great collector of many interesting and unusual things, especially from the 1940’s and 1950’s, and she displays her precious collections throughout the house, she and Johnny are also amazing cooks! This beautiful home, flooded with natural day light, situated right on the beach is the perfect place to unwind, knit and relax…perfect. Each evening we will be enjoying some of the best food Whitstable has to offer with dinner served at The Whitstable Oyster Fish Restaurant, The Sportsman and of course the Hotel Continental.
