Cochenille hosts design and fashion retreats in various locations. Currently, we are offering a Design And Fashion Retreat in Verona, Italy.

Fashion, Textiles, Food...

This year, we have added more emphasis on mini-workshops; some with locals and some with Susan. Topics will revolve around hand-techniques with fiber (Nuno felting), dyeing/printing (either Shibori or printing), sustainable design projects, and more.  In addition, we will have fashion appointments that include visits to artisans, fabric and yarn stores, designers, and a knitting mill. There will be two out-of-town trips. The first is to attend an event call Abilmente (the Salon of Creative Ideas) which is in Vicenza, and features exhibits, workshops, and vendors. We will also take a trip to Venice to explore its sights and items related to fashion.
