How does it work?

These unforgettable experiences offer three to seven days of intensive exploration – of the destination and of your own creative potential:

  • Inspiring locations include the colourful souks of Marrakech, the Berber villages of the Atlas Mountains, the vibrant streets of Istanbul, and the flamboyant Moorish cities of Andalucia.

  • Creative learning is provided by two expert tutors on each trip. They lead live practice sessions in the location's top sites, supported by classroom seminars of theory and comment on your work.

  • An amazing trip is created by our insider's view of great destinations, by the fun we have in atmospheric local bars and restaurants, and by the buzz of a group of kindred spirits sharing their interests and plans.

Each of these trips is different and special, and you can learn new things each time. Many people come back again and again, improving their skills and progressing their work each time.
