After a common bioenergetic breakfast, wonderfully relaxed, we´ll work in the morning in the studio flooded with natural light and the open-air terrace.
I´ll provide my extensive knowledge to assist you to attain your particular and individual handicraft and artistic objectives with personalized tuition from beginning to advanced levels.
