Warp & Weft Textile Tours

Wouldn't it be incredible to visit some of the world's most interesting regions and seeing skilled artisans producing beautiful traditional textiles including embroidery, dyeing, weaving, and basketwork. Warp & Weft Textile Tours run fully equipped tours accompanied by textile specialists including Christine Pearson, Ruth Hadlow and Valerie Kirk. Tours include visiting local markets, participating in textile workshops and craft emporiums whilst sampling wonderful local cuisine. Whilst the prices may seem out of your budget, why not look at applying for Arts SA or Australia Council for the Arts grant to support your trip, as these tours would be incredible professional development opportunities. 

Future programs for 2011 include:
The Textiles of Lao and Vietnam - 17 Jan to 2 Feb
West Timor Textiles and Culture - 04 Jun to 18 Jun
The Textiles and Rural Villages of Gujarat - Sept 2011
N. E. India Tribal Textiles and Festivals - Nov 2011
