series description

In DESTINATION CRAFT WITH JIM WEST, host Jim West travels with a small group of crafters to discover, participate and celebrate in the traditions, arts, culture, scenery, and food of each destination. Throughout the 13-part series, West introduces viewers to exotic and beautiful countries across the globe, showcasing master indigenous artists in both workshop and demonstrations. They travel to South Asia, where they visit a group of monks in the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal who make colored sand Mandela designs in a Buddhist Temple. In India, Jim and the crafters participate in a rangoli design workshop and learn savory tips from a master chef for making a traditional Indian dish. The group also journeys to the West of Ireland and to Dublin where they're taught the techniques of Irish soap making from master crafstman, as well as the art of making jewelry from Connemara Marble. From learning about the arts of batik and wood carving in Bali, to blowing colorful glass Christmas ornaments in Rattenberg, Austria, to making the perfect cup of coffee in Guatemala, DESTINATION CRAFT highlights the heart and soul of master artisans around the world who are inspired by the fascinating countries and cultures in which they live.
