Set in the small rooms surrounding the leafy courtyard of the 18th-century Cedid Mehmed Efendi Medresesi, this handicrafts centre next door to the Yeşil Ev hotel is unusual in that local artisans sometimes work here and don’t mind if visitors watch. Their creations are available for purchase; it’s a great place to source beautiful calligraphy, glassware, hand embroidery, miniature paintings, ceramics and fabric dolls.
