Last Sunday we travelled to the High Atlas mountains for the most adventures day of the cool crochet workshop.

It has been a unforgettable journey.
After a road trip of less than two hours (you can see everything!) you are in a completely different Morocco.

Settled down on a terrace with coffee, tea & breathtaking views, we had a relaxed mittens making morning. Nine-year-old Stella joined the crochteers and crocheted for the first time. In the afternoon we had lunch and everyone was having a good time, swimming, strolling through the vegetable garden or whatever.

During sunset we returned to Marrakech and made a stop at the Ourika river. Magnificent!

Another day in the souk with spicy moroccan crochet lessons by lovely Aisha on Place des Epices.

After everyone had mastered the technique, we moved to Terrasse des Epices for a spicy and tasty lunch.

With some Moroccan tea in the shade on the lazy benches there was time for slow siesta crochet...

Plenty of inspiration on day 1 of the cool crochet workshop. Moroccan hues in the Medina; an insane color explosion!

We bought wool and had our first crochet session after lunch on the panoramic roof terrace of Maison de la Photographie, overlooking Marrakech with the snowy High Atlas in the background.
