May 7-17, 2019
We have a spectacular trip planned! Morocco has a rich fine craft tradition spanning millennia, influenced by Andalusian, European, Arab and Jewish populations and fused with Berber traditions. On our program 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. The program includes looks at tile making, wood and stucco carving, metal working, ceramics, weaving and leather work, as well as photography and high-end historic restoration work. For this trip Peters Valley has partnered with Distant Horizons, a leader in cultural and educational group travel. We’ve chosen beautiful one-of-a-kind boutique hotel properties (with limited space so early reservations are essential). Executive Director of Peters Valley Kristin Muller will be joining us on the trip, and we’ll be accompanied throughout by one of Morocco's top bi-lingual guides. Please email Peters Valley board member Teresa Stack (teresa.stack @ gmail.com) or call her at 347-461-8524 for more information.
