Ready to plan your next creative escape? Or, maybe your first one? Cultured Expressions is here to help ; ) with a quick sneak peek for our 2018 SewJourn adventures! Brochures are coming soon, but you’ll want to mark your calendars and plan to join us in Colorado and Santa Fe/Albuquerque!
We’re planning a fun new twist for our Colorado Mountain Retreat…this year, it’s morphed into The Wine Lovers’ Quilt Retreat. Think of of as a 4-night sip-n-sew pajama party…’Nuff said! Learn to pair wines not only with foods, but with your creative projects! Enjoy time to work on your own projects, along with my mini workshop, a field trip into Denver. It all takes place in the mountains August 8-12, 2018 and the retreat house is located about 1 hour outside of Denver. Details are being firmed up now.
Likewise, we’re switching up our SewJourn to Santa Fe just a bit — Master indigo artist Gasali Adeyemo returns as our featured instructor — this time, he’s sharing his expertise in traditional batik! If you’ve taken his adire workshops, this 2-day batik intensive will round out your experience in Yoruba textile arts. And we’ll soak up the knowledge of other area artisans as well, bringing home unique self-crafted souvenirs… October 3-9, 2018
Once details are confirmed, we’ll publish the brochures. If you’re interested, pelase don’t delay – our SewJourns seem to fill up faster each year, and space is limited to ensure a personal experience for everyone. African fabrics, culture, food and drink with like-minded friends…Do not miss out!!
