Morocco teaching trip-Alchemy of a Nomad

 

PART 1 OF MY MOROCCO WORKSHOP TRIP-ALCHEMY OF A NOMAD

I just recently got back from the most amazing, life changing experience of my life, both professionally and personally. I want to try to write this quickly so as to not forget. There is so much to say, but importantly, words can not express the profound experience. Michelle Fletcher was my host. Check out her website www.michellefletcherart.com. She curated the most luxurious Riads for us to rest as we travel through Morocco. She takes such care of every detail of the trip providing us with tours not only interesting and surprising, but benefit the hard working people of Morocco in particular the women. This was our welcome tea the first night we were there.

 

On our way to the desert to Michelle and Kamal's Kasbah Ait Isfoul, we visited the ancient Kasbah Telovet. On the outside it was all ruins but what we found inside was incredible!! So much exquisite detail. Here is what we saw!

 

We made a stop at The Anou, a weaver's co-op. There was one woman in particular that opened up my heart. She had so much history and beauty in her face. I asked to take her picture and she then asked me to sit next to her. All through communication with the heart. We hugged and I gave her a kiss. I was overwhelmed with feeling and it was captured in these photos. They served us tea and lunch. They shared their process of spinning, dyeing and weaving. Such beautiful work and treasured moments. We all bought some of their beautiful rugs.

 

 

We stopped at Tamgroute Pottery and had a charming guide that showed us the process. They dig a hole in the ground and make a seat to do the work   It is then fired using cedar wood and palm trees. It is quite a dramatic sight to see!! 

One of the biggest highlights was arriving at Michelle and Kamal's Kasbah Ait Isfoul!! We were welcomed with incredible Moroccan musicians and refreshing drinks. I had tears in my eyes. I was overcome with emotion once again and so priviliged to have this experience. What a beautiful home they created and a place for travelers to relax and take in the mystery of this beautiful place. All meals were a work of art created by their personal chef, Muhammad. The studio was a dream. Michelle created a beautiful and functional environment that was so inviting. I loved creating in this space!! I loved my students and I was over the top excited by each and every piece they created. I could see these vestments as part of a garment as well as a work of art. The beautiful stitching added to the pieces was a very special touch.

Memories of Hong Kong replayed in my head when I returned to New York and decided to create The Peahce Project, a platform for Asian voices in the form of interviews, art, writing and podcasts.

When quarantine began in March 2020, our Instagram page started getting a lot more engagement, and one topic that connected with our audience was racial impostor syndrome.

In the early 1960s, about 500 lobotomies were carried out each year in the UK, down from 1,500 at its peak. By the mid-1970s this number had dropped to around 100-150 a year, nearly always involving smaller cuts and more precise targeting.

Today, the Darsena provides a vital lung in a city infamous for its pollution. Every day, people stroll around its banks or sit with a takeaway cocktail from the nearby bars – an increasingly common sight during the pandemic. Kayakers glide over its glassy waters; fishermen teach their grandkids the patient art of angling; while runners trace loops around the boardwalk. Its success and ongoing popularity long after the Expo have led to an incredibly ambitious project to completely re-open Milan’s Inner Ring.

After a lengthy consultation process that ended in 2019, a project was finally announced to re-open the 8km stretch of canal from Cassina di Pomm in the north of the city to the Darsena in the south, effectively retracing Milan’s medieval central canal system and seeing freshwater flow through Milan for the first time in half a century.

Currently, designs are being drafted for an underground tunnel to allow the water to pass through the city centre – it is hoped that the project could be completed by 2026 when Milan is set to co-host the Winter Olympics with Cortina d'Ampezzo.

“We have to see the re-opening as a big project for redeveloping the city. It will help the Milanese to live better. No pollution, no smog, no traffic,” said Federico Bianchino, a local tour guide and member of Riaprire i Navigli, an organisation dedicated the renovation of the navigli.

A small harbour I know well

A small harbour I know well appears on an Instagram story, catching me by surprise with its flash of familiar cobbled streets and blue skies. It's Wales: the land I grew up in and home to memories of afternoons spent fishing for crabs on that very harbourside in Porthmadog, long sand-dune walks along the north-west coastline and the inescapable smell of the sea.
