During the past two weeks, students at the academy who took the Mudejar ceramics class learned about Mudéjar art, a style that is native and unique to the history of Spain, and a meeting point between Christianity and Islam. Mudéjar refers to the Muslims who continued to practice their religion and their customs in the territories that became part of Christian dominions such as Granada, the last Moorish bastion in Spain before the Spanish Reconquest in 1492. The materials, techniques, and formal elements of Islamic artistic work left their stamp on the architecture of Spain.

We tried various teas such as "1001 Nights" or "A Thousand Flowers", coffees and sweets that made mouths water!
