About the Course

Sweden boasts a beautiful coastline and when you step ashore there is much to explore. This cruise is a chance to discover the delights of this wonderful part of Scandinavia and hone your knitting skills under the expert guidance of Karie Westermann.

We’ll spend an afternoon with Swedish author and designer Erika Åberg, whose contemporary knitwear is inspired by everyday life on Gotland, and with included excursions in both Lysekil and Gothenburg there’s plenty to tempt your textile and woolly taste buds!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
