ERIN BLACK | BOOKSELLER
Erin came to Bauman in 2012 after a stint in Venice where she researched early printed books at the Fondazione Cini on the island of San Giorgio. Prior to that, she received a master’s degree in the Intellectual and Cultural History of the Renaissance from the Warburg Institute in London. When she’s not talking books at Madison, she may be found studying obscure topics in scientific illustration and philosophy in early print, tending to her herb and tea gardens, or kickboxing.
Interesting in a learning the art of Turkish felt-making at a master craftsman’s workshop? And making your very own hat, bag or even pair of shoes to take home? Or how about a spot of Ottoman marbling? Or a crash course in Turkish calligraphy? Or a Turkish tile and ceramic painting masterclass? Or, my personal favourite, a private lesson learning to play a Turkish musical instrument like a Qanun or an Oud?
Les Art Turcs offers a serious array of hands-on arts and culture workshops if you are interested to learn something new. They range from a couple of hours to full-day sessions. The team do look after you very well, and will throw in lunch if you are hanging around for a few hours. The institute’s sufism lectures are also worth checking out.
