Craft Culture and Cuisine - Tour West Bengal.
TOUR DATES 5th - 20th NOVEMBER 2020
Travel with me. I love to share my passion for Indian textiles and crafts, the rich culture and delicious cuisine. I host small groups at a maximum of 15 people on a tour of West Bengal for 16 days.
This tour is designed to introduce you to a fascinating part of India. We start and end the tour in Kolkata, India’s second largest city and capital of West Bengal.
The tour focus is on textiles and crafts and you will participate in block printing, kantha embroidery, and textile dye workshops. We travel north to Murshidabad, Shantiniketan and Bishnupur where learn more about village crafts including fine silk and cotton weaving, leather craft, lost wax metal casting, and ceramic sculptures. You will also discover interesting new fruits and vegetables and learn about the way that Bengali food is different from other Indian cuisines.
We travel by bus and stay at a variety of different level hotels. You will have free time in Shantiniketan and Kolkata to explore on your own.
Join me on the fully hosted tour so that I can share my enthusiasm for this incredible country.
