What you'll do

Meeting in the the village square , I will escort guests to my traditional house for a complimentary drink, introductions/house keeping. The work space has views of the island and will be air conditioned if it is hot. During this time I will outline the plan for the day, introduce tools/equipment, show examples of what we will be creating and ascertain level of experience. I will demonstrate basic techniques, explain different types of thread, beads; findings used to make jewellery. We will then have a practise at crocheting before before attempting to create a bare foot thong. We will have a break for a drink and snack. During this time I will share a few island secrets e.g good restaurants, beaches etc. If there is time at the end of each session I will demonstrate how to make a bracelet and guests can try to create one for themselves. Water will be provided throughout the session. Guests take their creations home. As a thank you for attending the course I will be giving each guest a small thank you gift. The course will be held in the morning giving guests the opportunity to explore the village, go to the beach and area later in the day.

Meet your host, Sue

Host on Airbnb since 2014
  • Identity verified
Hi my name is Sue and I live with my Greek/Australian partner in Paleo Karlovasi, one of the oldest villages on the island. The village is very traditional, tranquil and not at all touristy. The views are spectacular. I have been practising art, jewellery making, dress and textile design for over 40 years. I create many types of jewellery from many different materials. I founded River Beach Designs , an on line jewellery store some years ago to sell my work. as well as pieces sourced from my travels My initial inspiration for starting the shop was the semi-precious stones found on my local beach which I turn into unique wire work jewellery. I use a mixture of natural products, up cycled vintage jewellery, ethnic and modern beads, and new findings to create individual and unique pieces.
