Art holidays that inspire, whatever your craft

Craft your ideal art holiday

Great art does not require divine inspiration or world-class skills.
It’s simply about expanding your mind to let your creativity flourish, intertwining mediums and styles and willing to be bold and get your hands dirty for your creations, and, most importantly, sharing laughter, feedback and a glass of wine with others after a day in the studio together.

Hands-on art and craft holidays let you experiment with all that using mediums you may not have considered, from laying intricate mosaic tiles to cutting fine jewellery wires to shaping pottery from a block of clay.
And with professional creatives, lifelong potters and local artists helping you find your muse, you’ll return with new skills and one-of-a-kind souvenirs made by your own hands.

From the mountains, hills and coasts of Spain and the sandy beaches of Greece to the sunny skies of Cyprus and the rolling countryside of France, you can spend your art holiday capturing eccentric street life, snippets of history and captivating landscapes, all under the guidance of a local host.

Who are our arts and crafts holiday guests?

Hands-on learners, unsteady novices and experienced artists – everyone is welcome in the studios and homes of our craft and art holiday hosts.

You’ll meet people of all ages and nationalities, with arts and crafts holidays for singles, couples and groups of friends. Some have devoted their lives to their art, others are keen to leave their number-crunching brains at the office and inspire their minds.

All that’s required is a passion for creativity, a desire to learn and a refusal to be boxed in.

Is this you? It looks like you. Come and join them.
