Have you ever admired the intricate copper pots (sahan) that your Sunday “menemen" is served in or the gorgeously delicate tea and coffee sets found in many Turkish homes? Then don’t miss this chance to visit Hak Art, a family run company that has been hand crafting copper and brass decorative items in Istanbul since 1965. Nowadays, they supply to some of the most famous top-end brand names in kitchenware and household goods.
We will be given a fascinating tour of the production area, allowing us to watch the coppersmiths in action and see how they hammer out their beautiful copper and brass pieces. They produce many different items, including traditional tea and coffee sets, brass lanterns, hand lined heavy-duty copper pots and pans, bowls and trays, as well as decorative items such as delicate pomegranate-shaped miniature boxes.
The atelier also specialises in restoring antique copper, wooden and clay items sourced from across Anatolia.
After the tour we will have the opportunity to purchase products from the huge Hakart shop - at very affordable wholesale prices. With over 2500 beautiful items on offer, you are sure to find the perfect holiday gifts! (Please note that Hakart does not accept credit cards).
We will depart on our minibus from Kanyon, returning there in the afternoon. The price of the event is for round trip transport only. Lunch is extra (there is a cafe restaurant by the factory).
A very popular program with our members, at the perfect time of year, be sure to grab your seat!
