Workshops for Women and Children

The workshops, which last for approximately 6 weeks on a regular basis, on the same day and time each week, are carried out as a closed group.
Social Relations Are Strengthening
While the participants gain experience in fine arts and craft, they have the opportunity to share an environment where they strengthen their social relations, develop new bonds and get to know each other`s living spaces. They also experience communicating with individuals from different cultures, overcoming the language barrier, collaborating, being productive and taking time for them.
