That may be by the sea or inland. We work until around noon, after which we go on excursiosn or return to our accommodations.

Private package
You can also combine our workshops with a self-booked package. In that case you take care of your own transportation to our meeting point and pay € 200,- p.p. for the 4-day workshop.

Optional excursions
In the afternoon we offer optional excursions, for example to the beautiful old village Orino, where the 98-year-old Maria shows us her old loom. Or you can join us to the village Kalamafka, with above it a small chapel, hidden in a rock. This is accessed via a large number of steps, but well worth it! There is also a hike to a waterfall and a visit to the quaint village Kato Simmi, where all year water flows abundantly from the mountains. The trip to the Sarakina gorge is also highly recommended! The excursions are included. Would you rather spend your time on the beach, you are free to do so.
