You will also learn just how much colour is an integral part of interior design and how to create a colour palette that is pleasing to the eye and the soul.

Then you will dive into the world of textiles an textures. We explore the types of materials designers use to achieve beautiful interiors, from bedding to window treatments and wall coverings.

Excursion and Afternoon Workshop

After breakfast, you will have the choice to go out on a walking tour or a tuk tuk tour. The walking tour is a 3 hour stroll with a local guide who will tell you all about the history of the pueblo and take you to some beautiful hidden gems in the town. Your guide will be there to answer any questions you may have as you explore this picturesque town with them.

On the tuk tuk tour, you will be joined by a local driver who will tell you all about the culture and history of the area, whilst answering any questions you may have. The high up viewpoints in the village can be a challenge for some, so sit back and ride up in style. You will have amazing panoramic views of the landscape and on a clear day, you can see as far a Morocco!

In the afternoon, you will have a workshop on space planning. You will be asked to bring some simple measurement with you to help you create a floor plan of your space. Understanding the basics of what fits where may sounds simple, but it is an essential aspect of interior design. You will be helped to create a list of items to include in your chosen room and how to arrange them in the best manner.

In the evening you will have lots of time to relax after a busy day, visit one of the local restaurants for dinner, or just stay at the hotel. It is up to you.
