The idea for CASTANEA Crafts in Spain grew out of owner Brenda Killigrew’s passion for Spain. Brenda, who already runs Inkberrow Design Centre, an education centre in Redditch, Worcestershire, renowned for its excellence in millinery, fashion, theatre costume, tailoring, textiles, patchwork and quilting and corsetry produces cutting-edge work with City & Guilds students.
With CASTANEA, Brenda wanted to introduce a more informal and relaxed way of learning. Crafts in Spain does just this. Situated in the Murcia region, it is the ideal getaway to immerse yourself in your favourite craft, surrounded by sunny skies and like-minded people.
For those who get bored on a typical beach-style holiday, or find that they have no one to go away with, special interest breaks such as this bridge the gap, enabling you to enjoy the weather, see a little of the area and forge new and often long-lasting friendships.
So whether it’s multi-media textiles, patch-work quilting or free machine embroidery that takes your fancy, CASTANEA is the ideal holiday, suitable for singles or groups wishing to share their passion for crafting. With fantastic golfing near by, it is also the perfect solution for ladies whose husbands are golf enthusiasts! Play a few rounds on beautiful courses beneath palm trees, visit Murcia and the local area, or just lay on the beach – we offer a discount for friends and partners who don’t want to take part in the crafting activities.
