5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

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.
