Textile & Craft Tour of Ghana

Lisa Shepard Stewart of Cultured Expressions fabric shopping in Africa

Lisa Shepard Stewart one of my colleagues of Cultured Expressions is sponsoring a trip to Ghana, West Africa, September 16-17, 2010. Among the activities planned are fabric and beading workshops, visits to artist studios, tours of Accra, Kumasi and the Cape Coast. Lorna K. Johnson, Principal of Global Linkages and a specialist in group travel in Africa will be working on the logistics.

As a doll and mixed media artist, one of my favorite activities is to shop for fabric particularly in their native countries! In particular, I am most interested in batiks.

I am planning on attending so I am saving my money NOW! I hope you will consider joining me. For more details click here.
