Splendors of Morocco!
October 11, 2022
Travel Morocco and discover the world of pottery, ceramics, and zellige (traditional mosaic). This tour will traverse Morocco from the capital city of Rabat to the ancient Medina of Fes in the North, then to the imperial city of Marrakech before crossing the High Atlas Mountains to the Sahara in the South. Visiting museums, busy souks (markets), and traditional artisans working in clay, we will experience the wonderful world of Morocco. During this cultural tour with a focus on exploring Moroccan ceramics, you will gather ideas and inspiration for your work, visiting renowned regions known for their unique traditional styles such as Fes, Saﬁ, Skoura Oasis, and Tamegroute.
Highlights of the tour include hands-on workshops: experience intricate and decorative glazing designs in Fes and at the edge of the Sahara we work with a traditional artisan to handbuild pieces with local clay, which will be fired in a traditional wood kiln.
We will end each day in luxurious, traditional guesthouses, and even an overnight luxury, desert camp in the Sahara while we wait for our pots to dry! You will enjoy the extraordinary delights of Amazigh (Berber) food and hospitality, including a traditional music performance. The warmth and good humor of the Moroccan people is immense, and the insights into the Islamic world, Amazigh spirituality, and contemporary life is fascinating. Traveling with a group of like-minded people and an experienced team of co-hosts, you’ll be joining a program that oﬀers an innovative and creative way to explore a new place that is stimulating, supportive, and safe.
