Meet and talk with Mallorca's Local Artists and Artisans. Island wide.


I love connecting visitors to Mallorca's artists and artisans. See the island from a different perspective by meeting the people who live and work here. Mallorca is high on the contemporary art scene. And the island is booming with new talent producing an array of locally designed and handmade articles. Some items are made nowhere else in Europe such as the Mallorcan "cloth of tongues" fabric, created using a method of production commonly known as ikat.

This tour is personalized and will be designed to suit your interests. Visit a painter's studio, a sculptor or an artisan of high-end glass dinnerware. Or a manufacturer of handmade luxury leather handbags, ceramicists, both traditional and contemporary. Visit a guitarmaker, a blacksmiths shop fitted with a forge and anvil or see how the art of plaiting is done with traditional fibers to make bags, hats and home accessories. How about a visit to an artisanal brandy manufacturer? The list goes on! And when hungry we'll stop to savor locally made delicacies.

Itinerary

This is a personalized day tour of the island with transportation which includes visits to 3 artists/artisans studios. The guests will have time to meet and talk with the artists/artisans, view his or her work and ask questions.

Tours are available for the discriminating traveler and are designed to accomodate 1-4 persons. There will be a stop for lunch at a select restaurant offering Mallorcan cuisine. Side-trips are also possible such as a visit to a winery, olive oil producer, etc.
