BOTANICAL WATERCOLOUR PAINTING, with Mariella Baldwin.

15th - 22nd October 2019.
Andalucia in the late summer and early autumn puts on a glorious display. October is a season of abundant fruit and stunning floral displays, and the leaves of trees are starting to turn rich and vibrant shades of red and gold. This course will allow participants to explore, using watercolour, indigenous flowers and fruits as they change from their summer to autumn plumage..

ANDALUCIAN COOKERY, with Paco Rodriguez

16th - 23rd May 2020
Visits to markets to buy the freshest local produce, plenty of time in the kitchen working up exciting recipes based on very traditional Andalucian dishes, and the sheer pleasure of eating and drinking great food and local wine in a shaded courtyard.

“I ate so well, learnt so many new dishes, made new friends and laughed so hard. It was a truly memorable experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back.”

The course runs alongside our Children’s Book Creation Course.
