The Marrakesh Express is leaving once again this May for a fabulous painting adventure to Peacock Pavilions in exotic Morocco. This will be the third trip to this intoxicating country where we will enjoy the warm hospitality of our lovely hostess Maryam of My Marrakesh as we paint, dine, tour, shop and partake of the many incredible sights, sounds, tastes and treats that this city has to offer.
This will be the first trip where we have the opportunity to stay at the soon-to-open Peacock Pavilions during our painting days,
as well as the ever-enchanting Hotel du Tresor, which is located in the heart of the Medina and its famous souks.
On past trips we have painted dramatic ceilings,
done zellij patterns on some stairs….
and henna patterns on others-
as well as ourselves!
We’ve done Art Deco murals
and graphic floors.
Our next trip will focus on the decoration of an entertainment and separate bar tent, which will be used for parties, wedding, and other special occasions at Peacock Pavilions. We will also do some smaller projects in the guest houses.
For inspiration, we are turning to classic Moroccan textile embroidery patterns
in classic shades of black and cream
as well a bold and bright colors.
Would you like to join us?? We have a few spots still open….and for the first time, I am offering a savings of $300 dollars off the trip if you pay in full. But you have to hurry! All the details are here.
