Le Marche/Rome Artisan Tour

11 Days of learning, working and sightseeing - October 11-22, 2018

Come join Alison Woolley and Gary Lord on another fun filled art tour in the Le Marche region of Italy. This is perhaps one of the most picturesques regions in all of Italy for the variety of scenery it offers. You will see spectular views of the Adriatic Sea and the majestic Apennine Mountains. AARP considers this region one of the top places in the world to retire.

We will be based out of the working Agriturismo La Campana We will tour the Le Marche region from here as well as hold our art workshop classes here. We will take a class on natural dyes made from plants from a leading expert in Italy and Europe and learn the secrets of plant dyeing, their properties and preparation of natural fibers and tissue, and take the first steps in the hand-dyeing. The ancient dyeing art testifies to the vitality of a world of beauty, elegance and craftsmanship that deserves to be known and practiced.

Alison and Gary will also teach a combination of finishes suitable for application on walls, ceilings, fabrics or furniture that will co-ordinate with the natural use of materials.

After enjoying the beatiful LeMarche region we will travel into Rome for 3 days to explore this ancient city in all of its glory.
