As makers (aka artists, artisans, crafters, people who work with their hands), we're at our happiest when doing, seeing and learning about the creative process.
Paint or fabric, wood or metal, glass or glue. The media doesn't matter. Every way of making leads to an appreciation of the others. And since we're makers, we love to explore craft work wherever we go. Our trips incorporate an exploration of a region's traditional processes, materials and techniques so we can better understand its culture and people. Then we connect with contemporary artisans to learn how that culture has evolved - is evolving - over time. There's so much to see, learn, and appreciate. If you're interested in travel inextricably linked with creative work, come along with us!
