I will be running international tours to Japan and Italy. The Japan tours are ceramic related with craft and food components. These tours give the opportunity to enter the intimate world of artists and artisans, visiting their homes and studios. A few highlights are: the Isamu Noguchi Museum, Naoshima Island  of art intstallations and a visit to a Living National Treasure in Bizen. We visit a number of well known artists as well as a few up and coming artists in their work environments.


Italy is similar in that it gives an opportunity to learn about the culture, history, art, craft, food, and wine (of course), through visits with artists, artisans, and museums throughout the trip. Italy may or may not have a hands on work component, to be announced.
