Tadelakt, shopping, holiday, marrakech, marrakesh

This workshop really stands out from all the other Homestyling and Shopping Retreats in Marrakech!  This time it is more hands-on than EVER. We will learn the skill of tadelakt! If one city is the home town of the renowned pure and organic lime plaster than this must be Marrakech! So what better place to learn the skill than Magical Marrakech, my hometown.


the secret of the right blending,
how to add the right colour pigments to give that little special to a room,
covering a wall, or maybe a piece of furniture,
finishing and polishing a small item to take back home.

The give back moment: 

WE WILL WORK for 6 hours ON A 'GIVE BACK/SUPPORT' site a little outside of Marrakech to create a beautiful tadelakt interior for young children, while learning the skill together with a master builder.
Part of your payment for this retreat will serve to buy all the stuff we need and the workers who construct it in advance.
One full week:

To capture all the knowledge,
get the insights,
handle the tools,
and at the same time be fully able to discover everything that Marrakech has to offer while enjoying the good life and have enough space for some quality me time.

Isn't this the most beautiful place to relax from the Medina hectic? Look at that colour on the tadelakt!

The venue for our spring workshop:

We are in for a full week in a truly stunning Medina riad (traditional old courtyard house) in one of the most unspoiled parts of the Medina, Offering you breath taking sunsets with views on the rooftops and the thousand? Mosques.  We will sunbath and relax in a ROOFTOP bubble pool and have a private Spa and wellness at our disposal. And the patio has a refreshing swimming pool. Almost all of the riad is finished in tadelakt. From ochre to black, from Marrakech pink to off white...You will get to know the way of decorating with tadelakt inside out. It's all in the package. And ...it's in my hoods :)

Our retreats are the ideal moments to learn, enjoy and relax:

having a well deserved break with some serious me-time, spa treatments, and relaxing moments,
discovering the art, culture and must visit places in Marrakech,

shop at all the hidden gems that are known by local stylists, trend hunters and the luxury shops worldwide.
