Last weekend Culture Vultures met with inspiring UK born, Australian artist Karen Hadfield who was visiting Fez to promote her new venture for artists and travelers on the edge of the sahara desert. Café Tissardmine is an arts house/guesthouse, between Rissani and Erfoud.
In may 2010 Karen bought a a run down but beautifully boned traditional Moroccan desert building in the Saharan village of Tissardmine, located on the edge of the giant sand dune Erg Chebbi. A year or so later Karen is now up and running and offering writers retreats run by high caliber, published writers. The next writers’ retreats are on December 11 – 14 with Judy Pascoe and January 22 – 26 with Lisa Evans.
Café Tissardmine also offers artists studio spaces and accommodation with full board. If you feel left out as a non-artist fear not, Karen and her Saharan colleagues welcome you to stay with them in at the oasis, enjoy the incredible scenery, absorb the tranquility and be inspired all the same.
