23-30th July 2020
A relaxing break in the beautiful laid back coastal town of Essaouira.
With its wonderful historic port bustling with fishing boats and fishermen mending nets and laying out their catch for sale to the cries of seagulls and the crash of Atlantic waves against the bastion. It’s lovely medina with quiet sidestreets, artists galleries and studios and even several vegan cafes and it’s fantastic street art. Essaouira is an inspiring place whether you are artistic or not with so much to see and do.
Or you can just spend a bit of time relaxing on the enormous beach or sauntering along it on a camel…
The art workshops on this holiday will be at the hotel on the second and third days and are suitable for both complete beginners and the more experienced. Essaouria is a perfect place to find inspiration and there are many beautiful places available to sketch or paint around the town. Individual tuition with Katherine can also be arranged if required.
We will stay in the medina just a few minutes walk from both the port and the beach

Riad accommodation in Marrakesh on your first and last night
5 nights with breakfast in the lovely centrally located Cap Sim hotel in Essaouria, just a few hundred yards from both the port and the medina.
