COSAS Folk Art Buying Trips
Go directly into the artists' homes and workshops.
In our travels, we’ve met so many artists and their families and have gotten to know such great hand crafted works of art. We felt that if people had the opportunity to meet the artists and watch the work being done, it would create a greater appreciation for these crafts that have such a fragile future in our high tech world.
Read about our upcoming Folk Art Tours & Buying Trips in the itineraries below. On our journey you can buy directly from each master craftsperson, and COSAS will arrange to ship your treasures back to Boerne, Texas. We stay in charming small hotels, eat well and leave enough free time in our schedules for your own leisure. Be sure to join us for a wonderful and different Folk Art buying experience.
