Excellent quick immersion

Our group of 10 loved this workshop. The teacher was relaxed and personable, even though he couldn't communicate too well in English. We got Turkish cookies and tea, we had a birthday girl with us who got a nice present.

I highly recommend adding this to your itinerary! It's a beautiful art form, run by someone who is passionate about what they do. We were picked up from our hotel and taken by public transport the best way to travel in Istanbul to the studio where we were treated to a wonderful class. I left feeling so inspired and hope to return to take a longer course in the near future.
