20 October 2016 • Nichos Workshop – Say Hola

It was such a wonderful treat getting into my creativity again through making Nichos. It was so relaxing and inviting. As simple as they may look it still required a creative process and that's what I was looking for -to think creatively again! Thank you Maria for making me think outside "my" box again! Now I want to try them for myself! 💀❤️🌹❤️💀 Sandra

Gorgeous hosts, very friendly, relaxed and cosy vibe, yum food (and margarita!). Better than any kind of therapy around. 'CJ'
