Handmade India!

A Creative Cultural Immersion with Amy Butler & Sujata Shah




Join us in INDIA! We have three beautiful weeks planned that combine creative workshops with local artisans including embroidery, block printing, dying and hand painting pottery. We'll explore historic temples, palaces and forts and scour hand made markets for raw materials and treasures! Our home base will be the luxurious Trident Hotel and includes delicious meals, pool side relaxation and beautiful spa treatments. Each week has only 12 spots. If you would like to join us on this adventure, you will be in for a trip of a lifetime!

Here are some of the activities we have planned:

* Experience several workshops covering a variety of creative projects led by local artisans.

* Ride an elephant to the gates of the Amer Fort and explore the beauty of this 17th century masterpiece.

* Unearth keepsakes at the Daskatar Bazaar and other local treasure troves.

* Let all of your stress disappear at the hands of a skilled masseuse.

* Explore an ancient Stepwell and the regal apartments of the City Palace.

* Enjoy local wines and delicious meals at the Trident, Jaipur.

* View the world, as the royal women of bygone years did from the Hawa Mahal, the epitome of Rajputana architecture.

Once you have registered for your week, we’ll follow up with a more detailed itinerary with workshop descriptions and a small supply list. And, as our trip approaches, we’ll send you helpful information to prepare you for your adventure.


All rooms at the Trident, Jaipur are double occupancy. If you don't have a roommate, we would be happy to find one for you.
