TOURS, VOYAGES OF DISCOVERY AND ARTISTIC RETREATS FOR 2012

Don't just dream it, do it!

As an avid knitter, designer and traveller who loves best to mix her passions in one big moveable feast, I created these tours to lead kindred spirits to some of the worlds most delectable places. Inspiration is the key. Every location is rich in either cultural or natural beauty, usually both. Each city, town, or landscape inspires the creative muse to dance through your fingertips: the color feasts of Istanbul and Turkey, and fasinating Tuscany. All awaits the inspired traveller.

I've tailored these voyages to light the creative spirit in us all. Whether we be knitters, crocheters, photographers, writers or artists by any other name, these trips will feed your imagination. Workshops are liberally mixed with excursions to markets, shopping, visits to museums or galleries, dining well, and relaxing in lovely small hotels. Numbers are kept small. Knitting/crochet workshops explore color and texture and I, sometimes with another artist, lead you in a project inspired by the host country. Not a knitter or a crocheter? Don't let that stop you. Much of these trips everyone can enjoy and, in truth, knitting is only a secondary activity. These trips focus on seeking inspiration from another culture, another landscape.

The 2012 intineraries are here.  There's Spain in May, Turkey in October and Florence & Tuscany also in October.
