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.

COME EXPLORE CUBA WITH US
October 26-November 2, 2019
Peters Valley is hosting a one-of-a-kind trip to Cuba, designed to experience the arts, crafts, and culture of this unique island nation at a historic time of change. Join us for our seven-night tour, conceived in partnership with Cuba Educational Travel, the leading organizer of group travel to the island. Together we've created a special program taking us from electrifying Havana to charming and quaint Trinidad and back. We'll spend three nights in the picturesque and vibrant Vedado district of Havana, then two nights in colonial Trinidad at a lovely bed & breakfast, then back to Havana for our last two evenings. We’ll meet with ceramists, mosaic artists, and photographers as well as experience hands-on demonstrations with print makers and other artisans as we explore the creative energy of the island and its people. You’ll also enjoy private concerts and dance recitals while sipping mojitos in the Cuba sunshine. Please email Peters Valley board member Teresa Stack (teresa.stack @ gmail.com) or call her at 347-461-8524 for more information. Space is limited and our previous trip sold out, so please reserve early!
