Your Mosaic Making Tutor
Dan is a talented artist who has extensive mosaics making experience and has been teaching for over 6 years. This fun and memorable course will provide the environment, materials and guidance so that you can produce your own unique mosaic artwork.
During your mosaic making holiday 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.
Your accommodation and courses are set in a beautiful and secluded retreat which is surrounded by almond, lemon and orange trees, sweet scented jasmine and bougainvillea. The retreat gardens are an ideal place to relax in the shade or to take a soothing swim in the private pool. If you would like to feel sand between your toes you are just 15 minutes from the fantastic coastal beaches of Murcia.
The retreat is not a hotel but a homestay with comfortable bedrooms that have been suitably designed for the well-being of the retreat participants. The terraced swimming pool is surrounded by sunbeds, umbrellas and seating and it is the perfect place to sunbathe during the day or chill out in the evenings. You can also enjoy the jacuzzi or go for a walk in the beautiful countryside.

La Magdalena is a small village in Murcia that is surrounded by almond groves and mountains. The closest range of mountains, the Sierra Espuna is a 45 minutes drive away and is a stunning nature reserve.
Twenty five minutes from the village is the port of Mazarron, and it is just forty minutes to the famous La Manga strip and the Mar Menor where people go to bathe in the salt lakes, with its many healing benefits. A little further is the Cathedral City of Murcia. In this region you will also find some of the best golf courses around. Walking and cycling trails are abundant as are quiet, protected beaches, and in this area the typical Spanish countryside with its sleepy villages is seemingly behind modern times.
A short drive from the village is the City of Cartagena which has a beautiful port, where the cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean stop off every Wednesday. Cartagena is not a tourist area and has many typical Spanish cultural places of interest to visit, good restaurants, museums and a great shopping centre.
The retreat is just twenty five minutes from the nearest airport of Murcia, San Javier. You could also fly to Alicante Airport which is just over an hour away, and transfers are available on request.
