Expect the Unexpected! 

India is a world of contrasts and sensory inspiration, that is immersed in deep cultural traditions. India pulsates with a spectacular mix of people, traditions, spices, scents and landscapes. Your journey through this mind-stirring country will be in your memory long after you've left.


Soul Stirring Spirituality is the common characteristic painted across the vast  canvas that is India. The multitude of sacred sites and rituals are a testament to the country's long, colorful history.

 

India tosses up the unexpected. This can be challenging, particularly for the first-time visitor: the poverty is confronting, Indian can be exasperating and the crush of humanity may turn the simplest task into an epic adventure., yet this is all part of the India ride. With an ability to inspire, frustrate, thrill all at once, adopting a 'go with the flow' attitude is the wise way. 

Love it or loathe it –– to embrace India's unpredictability is to embrace her soul.


The tour is not an intensive workshop as there is too much to see and experience in India, but time will be devoted to sharing ideas, discussing color, pattern, materials and a 3 day workshop exploring caging techniques in Jaipur as we gather wander and create together with Susan Lenart.
