Cool Crochet workshop April 2018.

A photo report of our first day in the medina.

After some serious wool shopping, we had lunch on the roof of Maison de la Photographie, with a breathtaking view of the snowy Atlas mountains.

At the end of the afternoon we made palm trees under the palm trees at Le Jardin Secret, a peaceful and spacious garden in the middle of the medina, where time stands still...

Tuesday morning in Marrakech.

The plan was to leave on my bike early in the morning, to visit the new Yves Saint Laurent museum, on this pre-cool crochet workshop day. But I woke up late and took it easy.

Once I arrived at Musee Yves Saint Laurent there was already a very long queue at the entrance, so I decided to have a drink on the terrace of 33 Majorelle instead, which was also wonderful and after a while I cycled back to the medina.

On the way back I saw the snowy Atlas mountains for the first time, which was breathtakingly beautiful!! I can hardly wait to go to the mountains in a few days. It was quite difficult to take a nice picture of the view, in the middle of the busy traffic.

I cycled through the park next to the Koutoubia Mosque and along the Jemaa el Fna square, where it's always a hive of activity, but once I drove into the alley to Chambres d'Amis it was wonderfully green and quiet again.

Now it's time for a siesta at the plunge pool on the roof...

Monday morning in the medina.

The small streets to Chambres d'Amis are getting greener by the day. New planters are currently being made.

Had my first breakfast on the roof (with the turtles haha) and now I'm off on my bike to make a medina tour.

This afternoon I'm off to Marrakech again.
I'm always excited to return to the Red City.

On Wednesday we will kick off with the 9th Cool Crochet workshop in Marrakech.

One week later the 3rd Green Gardens workshop is on the program.

Nice detail: this spring edition we have no less than 3 mother-daughter couples, who will join us on our adventures.

I hardly can't wait to settle down in the medina and start with the workshop preparations and meet everyone at Chambres d'Amis.
The first day I will definitely bring a visit to the new Musée Yves Saint Laurent on my bike...

In the meantime you can follow our adventures on Instagram @woodwoolstool #coolcrochetworkshop #greengardensworkshop

Bye!
