Courses with A Flavour of Spain

From May 2005 until their retirement in 2018, Mike and Lari Powell of A Flavour of Spain ran a range of courses and workshops at El Molino del Conde including cookery, watercolour painting, painting with acrylics or oils, creative writing, yoga and pilates. 

You can see here a number of the successful courses hosted over the years, during which time all our team at El Molino del Conde have developed a great deal of experience in how to ensure these events run smoothly. 

"Hilary and Mike are incredible hosts in an incredible facility! Nothing was left to chance; everything was well planned.  If you enjoy a pace away from the city, with First Class food, and every amenity, El Molino del Conde is the place!"

Nick Bantock

In September 2014, A Flavour of Spain ran the eighth workshop by Nick Bantock at El Molino del Conde.The daily sessions focused on making collage from found material as well as Nick's usual mix of paint and ephemera.

“Without doubt, the best workshop I've ever given was in Spain at El Molino where the surroundings, the food and the learning experience were truly amazing”


Suzanne Northcott

Suzanne returned to El Molino del Conde in April 2015 for An Intimate Spanish Adventure: Journalling, Pen and Watercolour on paper and Clayboard. Suzanne is a certified Hatha Yoga instructor and begins each day at El Molino with meditation and yoga.


Linda Muttit

Linda says "The culture and beauty of Spain is sure to inspire! My focus for painting at El Molino del Conde and the surrounding area is to have an exhilarating time taking our personal response to what we see and feel, and finding ways to express these experiences using watercolour, pen & ink, and some integrated writing. Participants will be shown specific skills to help them translate these experiences to paper. Emphasis will be on having fun and feeling free within the medium."


Nancy Crawford

In April 2015, Nancy Crawford, was invited to teach A Flavour of Spain's first Encaustic workshop: combining the ancient technique of painting with melted wax with other drawing and collage skills.


Kindrie Grove

Kindrie is a professional fine artist and art instructor who mentors everyone on an individual basis - whatever your skill level and subject matter. Landscape painting, still-life, local architecture, or the beautiful horses of southern Spain, you choose what you want to focus on!


Gail Short

Gail says “I love to capture the magic of this corner of the world on small pieces that become treasured souvenirs. When back in your own studio, you can create larger paintings and have fun extending your whole Spanish experience."

"The comfortable accommodation in a centuries old building and the gourmet Spanish food are wonderful. You live in a calm oasis where the painting opportunities are endless."
