I am however going full speed ahead in firming up my textile trip plans for Umbria in August 2016.
|The town of Trevi seen from the terrace of the house we will be staying in.|
This trip will have a different feel than the Verona Trips I organize. The focus of the Umbria trip is to create an art journal where from ideas can be extracted and new works, either traditional or contemporary, produced upon return to a studio back home. To help facilitate daily entries, we will have a daily theme as we visit hilltop towns, do cultural and art activities and visit two Italian artists.
|Vineyards and olive trees in the Umbria countryside.|
In November, I will be having a meeting in Toronto where I will present the full itinerary, show some photographs and have a price ready.

I can only take 6 people for this trip. So far I have four people VERY interested, four people who have come to Verona with me.
Think about it.
