I’ve given myself 3 months in central Turkey to set up a studio and see what I might make/do away from my ‘real’ life.
I’ve brought a few tools (needles, scissors, pliers) and a little handful of threads. Every other material must be found.
There are no stores bursting with craft materials. The weekly farmers’ market does have one stall which carries the materials for oyası the local beaded needle lace. Of which more later, no doubt.
There’s nothing like a change of location and lifestyle to bring to mind how much is automatic. I have no idea what will come out of this and most days that’s ok.
