"We are passionate about our Knit and Natter experience holidays in Bournemouth and Poole and will be adding new courses in 2018, which include: Quilting, Patchwork, Lace making, Stitching, Crochet, Embroidery and Beading"


Come to Fortis House for a lovely 4 day and 3 night holiday break and relax with a carefully selected group of friendly and enthusiastic Knitters and Stitchers. Retreat into our warm and cosy accommodation, where you will be taught new skills by our visiting tutors, explore a nearby wool spinning alpaca farm and knit with your own selected wool. Then, enjoy dining together with a private chef who can create a menu to suit your preferences. Your experience will be full of new friendship, and you will have learnt new skills in the wonderful surroundings of Bournemouth and Poole.

Fortis House welcomes Knitters and Stitchers of all ages and skills, where we will match the right group of people to holiday together, to learn and improve your techniques, alongside our resident professional teachers and a selection of visiting tutors. Your holiday ends with a free membership into the Dorset Guild of Weavers, Spinners, and Dyers.
