Deb and Julia will be traveling in 2017 to Colombia’s Caribbean Coast, in collaboration with arts and crafts expert Stephanie Schneiderman.
They’ll be embarking on 10 days of travel, starting in the colonial city of Cartagena and winding our way along the beautiful coast to the desert beach of Riohacha and on to the other worldly Guajira Peninsula where the desert meets the ocean.
Days will be spent visiting craft villages, markets, museums, and learning firsthand the natural and cultural diversity of this region.
Some of the highlights include the Gold Museum, Artesanias de Colombia, Barranquilla, Museo de Caribe, special visits to many villages, artisans and craft co-ops including the Wayuu people of the famed “Mochila” crochet bags.
We’re looking forward to traveling, and updating you on this Art & Soul experience post-trip!
