French Fusion Travel specialises in organising, hosting and tailoring small group tours for clients with their own clientele or friends to many destinations worldwide. Director Kate Stedman is Australian, an historian, speaks Italian and French fluently and is passionate about travel and has been guiding clients on specialist small group tours overseas since 2002.
These Experiences are small group fully escorted tours with your Historian & Tour Manager as well as your Renowned art instructor on our Sketching Tours.
Our tours are carefully designed to be of interest to all tastes, with great cuisine, historical and cultural sites as well as providing spectacular sketching opportunities. The guest sketcher on each tour is carefully selected, is exceptional in their field and globally renowned. So by popular demand our tours fill quickly usually.
When we select places that are popular for artists (eg Venice) we know secret spots away from crowds to sketch peacefully with our group.
Our holidays will take you to regions you might not have already experienced or yet ventured to and they are designed always with your comfort and your safety in mind.
Partners and non-sketchers are welcome too as there is always great camaraderie within our groups and lots of interest in what the sketchers produce each day. There are always lots of other opportunities for cooking classes, walking, photography or just relaxation for non-sketchers.
Many of our tours have many gents as well as ladies sketching on them.
DO I NEED TO BE A TALENTED ARTIST?
Absolutely not. You will be there for the pure love of learning and sharing with a group of like-minded people and we all learn and create at our own pace. You can be a pure beginner and feel just as pleased with your output and learning as everyone else. We will be there to teach, inspire and encourage you each day no matter what your skill and experience level. Our equipment is portable, watercolor based with some mixed media and designed to be quick, simple travel journal-style sketching to enhance your holiday.
For those wanting a professional, thoroughly well-planned tour group/ holiday/ special celebration we can organise everything for you so your clients are totally looked after and will have a wonderful holiday with you.
