Full description
The Anatolian peninsula in the center of Turkey has played an important role as a bridge for civilizations throughout the centuries. Learn ancient Anatolian art techniques in this 8-hour private experience with an expert guide.   First, on a visit to a large cooperative training institute, you will watch the local ladies at work patiently and skillfully creating Turkish carpets. Next, watch a skillful pottery master turning mud into a unique piece of art, then attempt to replicate it yourself.   Anatolians used volcanic rocks as well as precious and semiprecious stones with metals to create gorgeous examples of jewelry. The next stop will be at showroom packed with jewelry waiting for you to choose from.   Lastly, discover the Ottoman art of ebru (water marbling), an artistic way of reflecting the fluency and smoothness of water with exquisite colors and shapes on to a paper or a silk material. Enjoy a demonstration where the artist’s work will resemble a real magic trick.

The title of the activity is not particularly appealing on paper. But by reading the description, we let ourselves be tempted and in the end, we do not regret! I did not expect such a varied and detailed adventure. A top guide. A tour which turned out to be a private tour as no one else had booked which gave us even more time to enjoy, ask questions etc. Hard to say anything other than, go and see for yourself. The price-performance ratio is frankly the best and it is in the end much more interesting and complete than a banal Red or Green tour.
