We offer women’s textile arts retreats and tours to Japan, India, Morocco, Vietnam, Indonesia, Laos and Thailand, with Turkey, Iran, Iceland and the Silk Road being added in 2021.  We’re also expanding our offerings and planning 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.

Tours completed since 2015
