Sa Taronja is offering a variety of courses this summer, given by members of the Association.

There will be a DIADA DE LA PINTURA, Saturday 25th July from 10.30 - 13:00 h.
Everyone who would like a chance to paint is invited to come and participate.
Marta Bartolomé, art teacher, will be there to give tips and advice. Basic materials will be provided, but bring your own if you have them.

Marta Bartolomé also offers separate painting courses for children and for adults.


The most unusual offering this summer is a workshop to create an AEOLIAN HARP, during the weekend of 18-19 July. The cost of 150.00 for the two day, 8 hour workshop includes all materials, an illustrated lecture on the history of the Aeolian Harp, and instruction by luthier Fernando Rubin. Each participant will go home with a working instrument to fit into a window.
Please reserve places before June 1st.

Basketmaker Gisela Leupoldt is proposing a three-day workshop, an introduction to BASKETRY, probably the oldest craft in the world.

Cost is 120 € for the 15 hour workshop, including materials. Dates to be confirmed based on number of students.

TaKeTiNa-Rhythm-Workshop “Adventure Rhythm”

TaKeTiNa is a unique process capable of activating human and musical potential through rhythm. It conveys rhythm in a way that people can absorb, understand, and learn in the most natural manner.
TaKeTiNa guides its participants directly into the experience of primal rhythmic movements that are anchored in the sensory system of every human being. In TaKeTiNa, the body is the main instrument. The experience is therefore direct, intense and lasting.
We recommend booking both workshops, but it is also possible to take just one. Cost: Two workshops, 50€, one workshop, 30€. Please book before June 5th.
The two one day workshops take place on Sunday, 28th june and Sunday, 19th July from 10:30 to 1:00 and 4:00 to 6:30 pm. Multilingual info, 619 622 044 or email:, Tel 667 701 378 –
