Description
We regularly organize workshops Painting Fans on the southern Spanish coast near the town of Chiclana de la Frontera (province of Cádiz, Andalusia) .

The workshop is led by the designer of the fans on this site. She has followed the one and only existing course to become the title of fan designer at the School of Arts in Cádiz, Spain.

Participation is open to anyone who is artistic and creative. Both beginners and advanced students are welcome..

Transport
There are good connections between the airports in Spain and Cádiz. There are many flights going to Seville or Jerez de la Frontera. You can rent a car at the airport. If you don’t wish to rent a car we can provide transportation to / from your accommodation from the airports of Jerez and Seville.

The workshop
The workshop consists of at least four and a maximum of seven participants. The program starts preferably on a Sunday morning and ends on a Friday afternoon / evening with a nice exhibition of our fans while enjoying tapas and a Spanish wine.

The participants work in the studio on their fans in an informal and relaxed atmosphere, from 9:30 to 12:30 and from 13:30 to 17:00. The materials we work with are included in the price. After lunch we continue with the fans. But it is also possible to cool off in the sea (20 minutes distance) or explore the magnificent surroundings. But that is up to you.

Prices
The fixed fee for participating the workshop are € 400, – per person. This includes guidance, lunch, materials and the use of tools. Included is also a lecture with video and / or film about the history of art with special emphasis on the fan.

Location
The location is yet to be determined but it could be in Chiclana de la Frontera or in the city of Cádiz.

Chiclana de la Frontera is a city with a rural character with about 86 thousand inhabitants. That number quadruples in the summer because of the beautiful sandy beaches on the ocean. Originally it was a wine area, but gradually this area moved towards tourism. There are also beautiful hotels along the beach La Barrosa.

The rural zone in Chiclana where the workshop will take place is outstretched. Large fields of fighting bulls, cows, storks, partridges and rabbits. At the finca where the studio is located, you will also find horses, donkeys, dogs and cats. Would you prefer not to, then we do respect that.
