Textile and Ceramic Tours


Travel to exoctic places and share our love and enthusiam for the arts.

Our escorted small group textiles, ceramics, photography, art and craft tours travel to exotic locations not only for the sheer pleasure of being there but an opportunity to soak up the local rich cultural and craft experiences. We love to share our enthusiasm and our mutual love of the arts and crafts with other traditional artisians different from that of our own.  We visit a variety of workshops and homes to see artisans in action and discover completed fabrics and textiles that can expand our own repertoire of skills that help you refresh and allow you to develop a new understanding and insight into our own work. Our textile tours are not just about seeing the sights but trying something new as you will have the opportunity to work with the local artisans.  Along the way we walk, talk, laugh, listen, discover and explore the delights of a range of artistic workshops, arts and culture with local and international cuisine to inspire us.
