Travel with us to Japan!
May 21-June 1, 2023
This adventure is a wonderful opportunity to explore Japan intimately and meet traditional craftspeople and artists. Our itinerary includes looks at woodworking, paper making, kimono construction, lacquerware, woodblock printmaking, weaving, shibori and indigo dyeing, multiple kinds of ceramic arts and more. Visits to master crafts people in their studios will give you a first-hand view of how they create their magnificent art. We’ll enjoy special tours of museums and lectures on the unique architecture of Japan, including teahouses, temples, and samurai houses.
Registration for 2023 workshops is OPEN!
Virtual workshops are also being scheduled throughout the fall, winter & spring for those that cant join us in person.
