Due to popluar demand,we have scheduled two trips! Traditional crafts have played an important role in making the culture of the Japanese distinctly its own. It can indeed be said that traditional crafts are the heart and soul of the Japanese culture. A country that spent much of its history in isolation, Japan claims unique arts and crafts traditions that have been handed down from generation to generation. On this amazing trip you will explore museums, meet master artisans and visit many artist workshops throughout Tokyo, Kanazawa and Kyoto. Please email Peters Valley board member Teresa Stack (teresa.stack @ gmail.com) or call her at 347-461-8524 for more information. Space is very limited and this trip is sure to sell out, so please reserve early!

We’ll visit the medieval city of Fez, the imperial city of Meknes, the artisan centers of Sefrou and the High Atlas Mountains and end in iconic Marrakesh. We’ll travel though gorgeous rural landscapes and thriving old cities, meeting with local craftsmen and learning about their work first hand, with lectures and hands-on demonstrations. We’ve chosen beautiful one-of-a-kind boutique hotel properties (with limited space so early reservations are essential).
