Textile Tour to India
October 12, 2019 through October 20, 2019
We begin our tour in Mumbai, where we will explore the city's unique culture. We then fly to Gujarat, a state in India, where we will travel into the artisan villages of the Kutch region to sit with fiber artists in woven, printed, tie dyed, and hand embroidered textiles. We will see precious heirlooms from communities like the Ahirs and the Meghwaad Maaru. This exclusive tour takes us into homes and studios of world-class, award-winning artisans who have been practicing their craft for generations. We try our hand with workshops at some of the studios. We will be guided throughout the tour by English speaking experts in the Kutch region. You will begin to recognize the different styles and embroidery patterns of the Banni tribes of Kutch. But most of all, you will feel the warmth and hospitality of the Kutchi people, as you sit with them over lunch or tea and try your hand at stitching, weaving, and block printing. $1600 USD per person Excluding international flight. Call Ann Marie McCarthy for more details. (732) 567-3965
