Shopping in Weavers Alley, Ankara

Chris presenting at Ankara University, Turkey alongside translator İbrahim Pür

My favourite student art work at the University
Chris and I travelled to Ankara University, Turkey to present his paper which included aspects of the lazer /print class we co-taught. I managed to squeeze some shopping in (of course) and was amazed at the amount of stock everywhere: piles of wool, scarves, clothing and sparkly fluffy stuff. I purchased a bit of lace fabric for my daughter, only to find out later it is curtain fabric! Looking back at some of my photos I wish I could pluck things out and buy them but at the time I got pretty overwhelmed with the variety and volume and then there is the problem of having to make a decision on the spot!

hard to make a choice when there is so much!
I also liked these spoons
