Program Fee-Mexico City Textile Trip-November 2023
We will be visiting Mexico City's premier textile and handmade event, Original, from November 15-20, 2023, guided and curated by Heritage by Hand founder, Heidi McKinnon.
The program fee includes transportation to and from events, a translator during the Original Market so we can all follow our interests, speaking fees for artists who will visit with us or studio tours that we may do, museum entrance fees, and any incidentals that come up along the way.
Participants will cover their own travel and lodging costs, all meals, and transfer to and from the airport.
Participants will arrive on the afternoon of Wednesday, November 15th, and our itinerary will begin that evening. A list of apartments in Parque Mexico will be provided so all participants are in the same location. There are add-ons that can be arranged for other activities during our afternoon break. Details will be mailed to participants separately.
We will have some flexibility in our routine to take advantage of opportunities that arise, however the daily schedule will follow a basic structure. There will be a decent, but not overly taxing, amount of walking, and participants should be aware of that.
