This mosaic making & yoga holiday offers a calming creative retreat from the stresses of the outside world, a beautiful location, great food and a chance to not only create a unique piece of art to take home, but also the skills to be able to start a satisfying new hobby that will stay with you long after your holiday is over.

You will also enjoy 3 long morning Yoga sessions with local teachers to get your day off to the best start possible

Your tutor Dan is a talented artist who has extensive mosaics making experience and has been teaching for over 10 years. This fun course will provide the environment, materials and guidance so that you can produce your own unique mosaic artwork.

During the course you will learn the basis of cutting and shaping glass and mosaic tiles. On the course you will be able to complete a mosaic mounted on board for you to take back home to enjoy and impress your friends.

The beautiful and secluded retreat where your accommodation and courses are set is surrounded by almond, lemon and orange trees, sweet scented jasmine and bougainvillea. The gardens are an ideal place to relax in the shade or to take a soothing swim in the private pool and if you like the feel of the sand between your toes you are also just 20 minutes from the fantastic coastal beaches of Murcia.

This is the perfect place to get creative on a mosaic & yoga holiday with a difference.
