Photography & Photogravure printmaking

retreats in Spain

I offer group workshops to photographers and artists with any level of experience. They are limited to a maximum of 5 participants only, non-participating partners/spouses are welcome. Private tuition is arranged on request. The courses aim to facilitate the learning of new skills and the development of existing craft through tuition and practice, inspiration and the sharing of ideas.

The main elements of each course include the teaching and practice of photogravure printmaking (direct-to-plate), certain practical photographic skills, and the introduction of methods to help connect to your inner creative self to make artwork that resonates with feeling and emotion.

Disconnect from the busy world and get away away from your daily routines. Allow yourself space and time to focus on developing your photographic and printmaking skills in our workshop retreats in the green countryside of Galicia, Spain!

The workshop retreats are held at Casa da Cabaza, our B&B and creative workshop centre located in the green countryside of Galicia, northwestern Spain. Charmingly renovated from a 100-years old stone farmhouse, the centre offers private accommodation, a large dining-lounge/recreational room and peaceful gardens to relax in.

 

I have a modest library with an unusual collection of photographic art books for inspiration and ideas.

Casa da Cabaza is a fabulous location that provides a creative and inspirational environment, ideal for learning and developing new ideas and work.

about my photography & printmaking workshops

My professional background is as a photographer and printmaker with 25 years of experience working in London, Stockholm, Dubai and now Spain, where I live.

 

In addition to photographic and teaching projects, I have adapted from being a city person to life in the countryside, tending to the maintenance of our house and land, the tree orchards and vegetable gardens, and looking after our family of Arabian horses, Saluki dogs and farmhouse cats.

 

For some examples of my work, see Tariq Dajani Photography.
