Christina with dye artist @shiboribysuzie at the Jakarta Textile Museum, Indonesia

With decades of travel experience and setting up tours and excursions, Christina shares with you the tricks of the trade for creating your own personalized textile tour.  Items covered include:

  • Book online or through a travel agent?
  • Researching textile traditions
  • Contacting museums and fiber or textile artists
  • Plane, train, or automobile
  • Respecting local customs
  • Photography do’s and don’ts

This 45-60 minute talk starts with a introduction to the topics above and then goes into a question and answer period.  If your group or a group member has specific countries in mind to visit, Christina will address that region specifically (please give at least 3 week notice of what areas you would like covered- no more than 3 regions for the 45-60 minute lecture.)
