Art workshops

Santa Maria provides a friendly, welcoming and supportive space for people to immerse in a wide range of creative workshops and residential courses. From July to September the manor is abuzz with a mix of summer holiday-makers and artists who come to enjoy the beautiful Basque countryside in summer. The summer music season is a local fixture and attracts a unique mix of Basque locals and people from all over the world. In autumn, winter and spring, Santa Maria is filled with creative spirits, hosting group activities such as art, yoga, taï-chi, singing and dance.

A new 50m2 arts studio space is currently being built and will shortly be able to host a variety of arts & craft workshops (printmaking, batik, photography, natural dying workshops, environmental art workshops…).
