What you'll do

I want to organize workshops where guests can sit in my beautiful garden (it's a typical Tuscan 2000sqm garden, covered with olive trees and lavender, rosemary and irises bushes) and work themselves mad with whatever they like: knit, stitch, crotchet... I will prepare craftivist kits for them to work on something definite (i.e. a badge with a slogan, or a crotchetd coaster, or whatever will come to my mind), but they will be free to play with the cotton threads, sewing cloths, knitting needles that will be piled up in front of them, as well as all possible pearls and gadgets to make beautiful necklaces . But if guests have their own specific requests, we'll examine their ideas and try to make them real!
Other things to note
After, or before, fatiguing at the Uffizi or the Accademia, sit down for a few hours and put your mind to some "humble" mind-lightening occupation and make yourself a special souvenir de Florence ;)

Meet your host, Isabella

Host on Airbnb since 2011
  • Identity verified
I was introduced to crafting by my grandmothers when I was very little, and since then I have never stopped being curious and learning as much crafting as I could. Now I can stitch, knit, crotchet, I practice origami and collage, and embark myself in all possible handcrafting activity around - alas...
I am vegan and very concerned for the environment, thus I have started to produce everyday cotton objects for life, such as washcloths and make-up removers, hoping people will stop using microfiber.
My last adventure is craftivism, where I use my crafts to actively save animals and the planet through little works of art that I spread wherever - a sort of peaceful craftbombing :)

Where you'll be

we will spend the time in my garden: it is very big and colourful, fascinating in all seasons. My mother was born here, and my sibling and I too, as well as our children, thus if my guests are interested I'll be happy to share our family stories.
This is a secret place, as a high wall and gate hide it from the street, although we are very near the city centre of Florence and very easy to reach by public transport.
