Weaving in Turkey with Louise Martin and Jane Brunning
25th September - 2nd October 2017

Location: Dalyan
Nearest airport: Dalaman - 30 minutes by car.
Cost: Single room £725 Sharing a twin room £640

In September 2016 we took our first group to the stunning area of Dalyan, Turkey. This fertile region, next to the sea and surrounded by hills, was a wonderful backdrop to our weeks workshop. Spectrum (www.spectrumturkey.co.uk) hosted our stay. Situated 20 minutes walk from the centre of Dalyan, it is a peaceful place where you can sit by the pool or meander through the garden and relax in a hammock or tree house. Spaces to work are plentiful and the vegetarian meals, cooked by Turkish ladies, are delicious.

We loved it so much that we have organised another week commencing September 2017. Turkish carpets and the environment will be the focus of our workshops which will include daily drawing exercises and tapestry techniques.
