The journey started back in 2015 where I registered for a gilding (Tezhip) course here in Kuwait with the wonderful Turkish teacher Dilara Yarci. At that time, I didn’t have a full background on Ottoman patterns and didn’t have resources to learn from. But after that intensive course, I decided to pursue learning more about those patterns.
So from that moment onwards, I bought as many books as I could to learn about Ottoman patterns. It was complicated at the beginning when you see motifs, painting techniques, and new terminologies I didn’t read about before. But little by little, I got to know more and better understand this beautiful art.
