I can finally reveal my big and very exciting news... and you are hearing it here first... that I have been invited by Colouricious to host a block printing holiday to India next year
For ten days from 17th to 27th September 2019 we will be based in the beautiful pink city of Jaipur staying in a private family run hotel - the Megh Niwas. Our breakfasts and dinners will be prepared daily by their own chef using home grown organic food.
We will be taking part in several traditional block printing workshops in Jaipur supporting local artisans and craftsmen.
We will spend a day with elephants
and will visit local sights of historic interest and great beauty such as the magnificent Amer Fort, built high on a hillside from red sandstone and marble, overlooking Maota Lake
and Hawa Mahal, another stunning pink and red sandstone palace with over 900 small windows, originally used so that royal ladies could watch festivites without being seen. All transport will be in our own private coach.
There will also be time to visit markets, go shopping and experience local life.
I have always wanted to visit India so I can't tell you how excited I am about this trip. And all I have to do is tell you all about it and hopefully get enough people to fill up the tour... although places are limited. Flights are arranged from London Heathrow and are all inclusive in the price but you can join the trip from anywhere in the world if you wish to make your own transport arrangements and the price will be adjusted accordingly.
All the information you need can be found here:
but don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions.
Did I tell how excited I am?
