Slow Art In Marrakech!

Join Diva PyariRae Dunn & Coco Kliks for a magical week in Marrakech, Morocco! A land out of time, rich with color, tiles, spices, fragrances... An ancient city a thousand years old which has seen Roman rule, Vandal settlement, a rich showering of of Islamic culture, and, in our era, French influence. 

We'll start our mornings with beautiful Moroccan breakfasts, followed by slow art workshops - beginning with a meditation, then a creative lesson with Diva (modern calligraphy with traditional dip pen) or Rae (travel sketching and watercolors). The days (and candle-lit dinners) will be carefully curated and led by Coco, our style-maven and local expert! 

Refreshing body and mind, we'll discover ancient beauty rituals in the hammam, or Turkish baths.  We'll fill up our sketchbooks, visiting the inspiring Majorelle Garden of Yves Saint Laurent and the incredible tiles and architecture of the Bahia Palace and the Ben Youssef Mosque. And oh YES we'll shop to our bohemian hearts content in the souks of the Medina, at the legendary Jemaa el Fna! 

Marrakech is a spinning chaos of hustle and bustle among the winding alleyways, in the Medina, around every corner! And then you dip into a 'riad' (a traditional house, palace, or hotel - typically with latticed balconies overlooking a central courtyard) for tea or a meal -  and immediately there's calm again. The high walls of the riad are instantly soothing and serene, and we will be staying in one such peaceful and lovely oasis! In fact our luxury riad has a private hammam with two excellent masseuses available to book private treatments, an amazing restaurant, and a rooftop terrace with a pool and an incredible view of the Atlas Mountains! 

 

To reserve your place you can pay the total amount (non-refundable) below or give a $1500 deposit (also non-refundable) to be paid in full by June 1st. Contact me to pay deposit directly.
