Tours

SFS tours offers cultural and collaborative workshop programs developed with traditional artisan communities and small to medium-sized studios and factories. Our tours are held in specifically chosen regions of the world where textile and traditional culture runs deep. By design, SFS tours penetrate conventional tourism. Groups are small for a better learning experience and enables participants to engage with local communities. The programs are led by Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada personally and seminars and workshops during the tour are led by her colleagues, friends, and WSN members.

Due to high popularity, SFS Tours are open only to current WSN members. Join WSN
