#textiletravels

<Update: The first trip was a great success in August 2018. Read a bit about it here. Interested in joining us in the future? Let me know at mari@kakawdesigns.com>Textile Travel announcementCome join us on our very first of many #textiletravels, especially for Makers.  We will be visiting talented artisan groups in rural villages and learning their beautiful traditional techniques.  But more than that, we want to engage in creative interactions – so participants (Makers) will also be sharing their own experiences and ideas with different art forms.  Don’t worry if you don’t consider yourself a Maker!  Even just from a consumer perspective, the direct feedback you can provide the artisan groups trying to be innovative will be incredibly valuable.
