Just a little Information.

Stay tuned for the new tour information on our Textile tours to India 2018, Thailand 2018, India  2019 and Guatemala.   Possibly more.  These are the educational tours where everyone participates. I will teach art, photography and a little about Textiles, but we will have tutors  to take you through many of the  techniques of dying, printing and stitching and the amazing history of textiles.

The Textiles in Guatemala are just amazing, the colours, the techniques and the spectacle of the day to day lives of the wonderful people. I know the area well, the best restaurants, the best place to buy the fabrics and huipils  and how to take spectacular photographs.

I often add a little chat on FB, but I don’t get to share with my blog friends…. sorry about the subject… but I sort of just chat.

    Looks great! I hope you’re ‘dyeing ‘ and not dying! I will look at this when all info is available.
