April Workshops - Bodrum & Istanbul

This month saw Ottostop make its screen printing workshop debut in beautiful Bodrum, with a sell-out Sunday afternoon workshop aboard Karen V gulet. Then last weekend we were back in Istanbul at our two homes-from home, MaeZae, Karakoy and Conatiner, Besiktas. I've also welcomed a handful of new students to the Ottostop studio in Yanıklar, Fethiye (more photos of those workshops coming soon).  Here's a few images for your eyes to feast upon... for more information about Ottostop's workshops please email: leyla@ottostopdesign.com

Peace, love & creativity,
