Wat je gaat doen

Visit a private atelier, where you'll be taught by an expert glass blower and artist. The class begins with an introduction to the fascinating history of glass-making, which is said to have started as early as 1500 B.C. in Egypt. Spend most of the 1-hour-plus class hands-on: you'll learn shaping glass in the fire by melting it; and creating glass beads for jewelry or accessories.
No previous experience is required. Just patience and desire.

I’ve been working on glassmaking for 9 years. After years of studying at Czechia and working in the glass industry, I started my own brand 1200 Derece in 2015, which comes from the working temperature 1200 °C. Our mission is to revitalize the image of craftsmen, through meticulous demonstrations and nuanced design innovations.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Balat was once the place where foreigners and minorities live. Beginning from the 50's until recent years many minorities left and region was abounded. Today the place is going through renovation and trying to regain its soul. The buildings are becoming stylish cafes and they are painted in lively colors.
The workshop is at our studio in Balat with its original concept where you could see the production while you're having your refreshments.

This is such an awesome experience! First off, the location is great; on a really cool, artsy street, that has a hidden alley in a big-city type feel. The shop is immaculate, very clean, very cool. Merve set the experience for 2.5 hours but we ended up staying for nearly 3.5! Glass-melting is a really calming, interesting experience that is great as an individual travel, for couples, or for friends. I might just get one in my home, it provides a sense of calm. What really made the experience though was Merve -> she's so friendly, speaks good english, and has a bubbly personality. She is hands on enough that you learn, but hands off enough that you are able to experiment. She also made us coffee and provided water at various points. A real pleasure!

Loved the workshop. Had fun like a kid and Merve's skills (teaching and craftsmanship) shone bright like the beautiful pieces she has in the Atelier Displays. Highly recommended

Absolutely amazing afternoon. Merve is a great teacher, and thanks to her education in a chemistry field, it was not just a regular art class. She was able to explain the physics behind glasswork, so at the end I actually felt like I learned a lot about the topic. Her workshop takes place in a cute coffee house with delicious beverages served in her own glasses, which promotes the experience even higher. It turned out Merve studied a few years in the Czech Republic, and once she found out I am Czech, we had a lot to talk about. During the afternoon, we learned 3 different techniques, she showed me her work in action while making a beautiful figurine... what else to say, such a great experience with very skilled, kind and energetic host. I definitely recommend, eleven stars out of ten :)

My boyfriend and I did this fun and alternative experience, and really enjoyed ourselves in a hip part of Istanbul. We did not know what to expect, but the hosts were so friendly, it made it easy to chill out and try something new in a small group. Glass-working is very skilled so it was great to try this intro, and we got to make and keep a necklace and keychain we made as a memento. The part of town where the workshop is located has lots of great coffee houses, restaurants and shops to spend before or after the experience.

At the end of the workshop I felt inspired and excited to have spent time on learning a new skill. The teacher was very patient, kind, creative, articulate and had a really good sense of humour. Every time someone made a mistake she remained calm and collected and I had the best time. Truly incredible, fully recommend!! Also they had the best ice latte i’ve ever had!

Beautiful experience! We learned a lot and practiced and got a view into glasswork... you’re not going to become an expert from one class, but I’ve learned more in this class than most other Airbnb experiences. Very well tailored to get you to experience as much as possible. Great class
