Following the exciting experience of running a number of workshops on the rugged rocky peninsula of Mani, the Periplus Workshops for the summer 2023 moves to the island of Crete. Further exploring new creative potential, now based in a farm house amid the vast orange and olive groves of Alikianos, a small village at the outskirts of the medieval town of Chania. An area gifted with thousands of years long history of material culture and folk heritage.
The area's fascinating character is highlighted by its being on a unique rural island, where Europe's first advanced civilization thrived, succeeded by a myriad of powerful historic changes. An island with an immense agricultural potential, and with inhabitants of an exceptionally independent nature, that form
a distinctive society with long-lasting rooted traditions.
