In April 2020 I will be leading a 17 days small group ceramic tour to Morocco including a hands-on traditional ceramics workshop and I would very much appreciate if you could promote this tour to your members. 

In addition to the workshop, participants will enjoy a one day Berber cooking class as well as exploring Moroccan arts and ceramics in Fez, Safi and Meknes plus enjoy local food throughout.  A night in the desert amongst the Merzouga dunes under a thousand stars will be memorable and we will also visit Casablanca, Chefchouen and Marrakech.

The workshop will cater for all levels of experience and we also invite non-potting partners to join us.   I am limiting the workshop numbers to ensure that everyone can obtain full benefit.

If any of your members would like more details a pdf brochure can be downloaded from:  or they can contact me personally via email as per below.  Priced from US $4,195, see website for more details.
