Artisan Wares and Gastronomy trip to Guatemala October 8-17, 2023
The Guatemalan cuisine has evolved from Maya, Latin America, and western traditions and features complex flavors and fresh ingredients. Experience for yourself the delight of simple dishes made with locally grown ingredients. As we prepare these typical meals, we will experience shopping at the local market and the hustle and bustle of Guatemalan families purchasing their ingredients for daily meals.
Sharing the Dream works with many talented artisans. As part of this remarkable ten day trip, the participants will learn about and participate in workshops on backstrap weaving, ceramics, basketry, and beading. Artesanos, as the artisans are known locally, have learned their unique techniques from past generations, and they are very much a part of the Maya culture. Some of these crafts pre-date the arrival of the Spanish. To take part in this unique experience, please contact Lauren at email@example.com. Trip cost is $1800 plus airfare. The trip cost includes all lodging, meals with the exception of two meals, transportation in-country, entrance fees, translations, and activities during the trip. To reserve a spot, a $300 non-refundable deposit is required.
