Rug weaving Holiday in Bodrum Turkey

Rug weaving Holiday in Bodrum Turkey

About the Course

Come and join us for a week to learn traditional way Turkish weaving and experience the real Turkish life of villagers! Gokpinar is an old, nomadic village with a population of 100. Located on the Aegean Coast of Turkey, we enjoy a location away from areas with heavy tourist traffic. We are only 10 minutes drive from a lovely beach. Our land sits at the edge of the village, on a scenic hilltop with views of all the landscape for miles around the village.

The international Bodrum/Milas airport is 30 minutes drive away from Gokpinar.
There are charter flights between May / October from Europe & UK. Turkish airlines and other airlines fly all year around to Bodrum via Istanbul. Please get in touch for a list of airlines and low cost charter flights.
Most nationalities need a VISA for entry to Turkey, these can be purchased on arrival. (For British citizens it costs £10, For US citizens 20 USD.)

For reservations please send us an e-mail mentioning the dates you would like to join our programmes. We will be back to you with details.
