Artistic Artifacts works with Italian Cultural Tours to bring groups to Ischia di Castro, located approximately 55 miles (90 kilometers) northwest of Rome in the northernmost area of Lazio. Rich in history, Ischia di Castro is strategically located to many fascinating cities, historic archaeological sites such as the ancient Etruscan city of Castro, and bodies of water. This September Judy will be joined by Liz Kettle of Textile Evolution in this "Capturing a Sense of Place" retreat.
Indian textiles are a riot of color, textures and motifs, materials and mediums that changes with each region, village and community. Judy has partnered with Bespoke India Travel, who offer local guides who are natives of the regions they cover and have been rigorously selected for standards of client servicing, local knowledge, and passion for sharing their knowledge about local culture. In addition to hand-on textile activities such as block printing, you will enjoy opportunities to see local wildlife and visit historic temples and other sites.
