creative tours for women
textiles – handcrafts – dance – gardens
Welcome! We offer women’s textile arts retreats and tours to Japan, India, Morocco, Vietnam, Indonesia, Laos, Thailand and Australia with Turkey, Iran, Iceland and the Silk Road being added in 2023 and 2024. We’re also expanding our offerings to include dance focussed tours to Japan and Europe (London, Paris & Amsterdam) and a garden tour of Japan.
Please click here to join our mailing list or register your ‘Expression of Interest’ (EOI) for one or several tour destinations. Those on the EOI list for each destination will receive an early bird invitation to sign up for newly released tours to that destination before they’re made available to the general mailing list and promoted on social media. Many of our tours sell out to the EOI list alone before we have a chance to advertise them broadly.
2022 and 2023 tours (Covid permitting)
EOIs (Expressions of Interest) are now INVITED for all 2022 and 2023 tours unless marked as SOLD OUT.
