5-days, 5 nights, B&B in a luxury villa
Tutors: 2, Max Clients: 6



Gozo is a small, friendly island just a short ferry trip north from its larger neighbour – Malta and 20 miles south of Sicily. There are only a few sandy beaches, so it isn’t a destination for the 18-30’s crowd. Instead, you will find a quiet, beautiful island that is home to the world’s oldest free-standing structure, 5,500 years old. The island has a dominant warm honey colour coming from the locally mined limestone which is beautifully exaggerated by the rising and setting sun.


Our visit will give you an opportunity to explore a varied selection of locations offering a mix of photographic opportunities that can work in colour or black & white. From the beautiful and ancient salt pans in the north to the intriguing twists and turns of the Citadel and narrow streets in the capital, Il-Rabat (Victoria). There will also be an opportunity to visit and photograph a unique Museum of Toys owned by Clea’s mother for more than 30 years!


We plan to be out shooting for 3.5 days and spend 1.5 days working on images and books. We will bring a variety of portable printers with us, and the tools and materials needed to create a permanent and unique record of your travels in a simple book form.


Location, Accommodation and Transport

We will be staying in a beautiful Gozitan country house on the edge of the tiny village of Ghasri with extensive facilities including 2 private pools and a jacuzzi!

You will be staying in a double en-suite room.

We will have transport available during the stay.

See below for details on arrival and departure info.


Full details of the villa are here:

Start and End timing

We will meet for introductions at 5pm on Friday 2nd May and the workshop will finish at 5pm on Tuesday 6th May. Check-out is by 10am on the 7th of May.  We will be just out of season so we can suggest a hotel and transfer you if you decide to extend your stay.



We will use a minibus or car to reach our main locations but there is walking needed to explore. Some of the ground around the salt pans can be uneven and slippery in places.  One day will be spent walking around Victoria and the Citadel, so this workshop wouldn’t suit clients who tire quickly or need assistance walking. Please ask before booking if you are not sure.



We will provide breakfast each day and will have tea/coffee/light refreshments available at the house whilst we are working there, other meals at your expense. We will use a range of local restaurants which are modestly priced.


Getting to the Villa

You will fly into Malta International Airport in the south of Malta. Gozo is a small island to the north of Malta.


If you use our recommended flights, we will provide airport collection and drop-off. If you use other flights, there are plenty of taxi and public transport options that operate 24hrs a day, the ferry runs continuously through the night and only takes 25 minutes to cross. We will provide full details nearer to the workshop date.
