Have you always wanted to create your
own handmade book?
Would you like to create your own
wonder-filled pages?
Then Dyed and Gone to Spain is the workshop for you!
Liz Constable is an adventurous warm hearted tutor who
will happily guide you through all the stages from
chatting about your handmade book to holding it in your
hands, never wanting to let it go!
Let Liz show you how you can create incredible and

ways. It doesn’t matter if you don’t draw or paint or even
journal. This class is suitable for beginners through to
experienced book artists, bookbinders, journallers and
other artists.
A gifted teacher, Liz teases out of each student (even the
most timid ones) – a sense of adventure, playfulness
sometimes not experienced since childhood. Liz gets a
huge thrill out of watching students produce delicious
books they couldn’t believe were possible.
Nurture and explore your own artistic talents and enjoy
your own creative adventure at Cortijo Entre Molinos,
the farmhouse between the mills, in a tranquil valley
surrounded by olive groves. There’s time to absorb the
relaxing atmosphere, to savour Mediterranean cuisine
during leisurely lunches in the courtyard, tapas by
candlelight and long convivial dinners with new friends.
There’s lots of time too for afternoon dips in the pool, for
one-to-one instruction, country walks and plenty of
exploring the palace complex, including the beautiful
Patio of the Lions, newly completed after 9 years
restoration work. We’ll discover the charms of the
Summer palaces and Generalife, the architect’s gardens,
