2015 Japan Silk Study Tour

The 2013 Silk Study Tour was just wonder-filled. Great and joyous people, beauty filled, delicious, educational, uplifting and inspirational!  My complete and sincere thanks to everyone who came, enjoyed, learned, instructed, facilitated, accepted, and wondered.  I am ever in your debt for trusting us with your time and money, your heart and soul, and everything that went along with the tour.  I know we made lots of new lifetime friends and I look forward to seeing you again somewhere on this road called life.

どもありがとうございます!(domo arigato gozaimasu!)

We already have some repeat silk enthusiasts as well as a whole new group of those interested in exploring Japan’s silk production- past, present, and future-in addition to other textile related adventures.

    Please put me on the list. The dates for payment are still for the 2011 trip. Can you give some idea of when first and final payments are due for the 2013 trip?

    Paulein- I replied to you in a private email-perhaps it was blocked on your end. there is no problem in coming from the UK. will put your name on the list for further info once it comes out after the first of the year. thanks.

    Hi Glennis, Is there any chance to going to Arimatsu/Shibori Festival in 2013? I looked at your 2011 itinerary and that looked wonderful.

      the main tour does not include a trip to the shibori festival as it occurs June 1 &2 of 2013. Depending on the final tour dates (which will be set mid summer) I may include the possibility of an extension to see the festival. Hard to say at this moment though…

    Hi!
    I just discovered your site. Is it too late to indicate an interest in the tour and be added to the list? Coming from central Indiana.

    I am so sad to hear that there will be no tour next year! I just put it on my “to do” list. I just could not do it this year. Thanks for keeping me posted!

    Hi Shibori girl.
    I’m enjoying your news so much, I’m dreaming about the Japan trip. I look forward to seeeing more about it.
    I had let you know that I was plannning to attend Carter Smith 2 dayt workshop at his home in main but we are 2 people short. If we don’t get two more it will be cancelled. So if you know anyone pass it on please.
    I was hopeing you could direct me on somethingelse. I need a silk worm and silk pods for a demonstration. I have found some pet online shop that sells the reall ones but I was hoping for a fake one that would fit fill my palm. Can you direct anywhere for this?
    Thanks
    Karen

      by silk pods do you mean cocoons? perhaps if you google silk cocoons. there are lots of sources. as for a silkworm model, I don’t have a source for this although I did make one of my own out of cocoons. if I come across a source I’ll post about it. will mention the CS workshop around.

    How did this year’s silk study tour go? You will be freshly back from it and full of wonderful experiences.
    I am hoping to go on the 2015 tour if you are running one then.
    Cheers Suzi.

    I am very interested in your 2015 Japan Silk Study Tour. I attended a 6 week textile study tour in Japan in 1982 with Parson’s School of Design
    (their 1st one) and would like to return, as Japan is amazing!
