Silk Works - Cocoon Course in Kyrenia
Cyprus - Kyrenia


Art & Design


Traditional Hand Craft Course


One of the most widely used handcrafts in Cyprus was the use of silkworm cocoons. After carefully removing the silkworm in them, the holeless cocoon was used in either picture works or in decorating dresses. You will learn how to shape them and together we will improve our handcrafting.

And don't worry at all on your creativeness. When I started, I was so stressed on how to do it; but from the first day, I noticed how joyful it is. I noticed that every person has their own style of doing things and silkworms are entertaining to play with.

All equipment will be provided. Just bring your passion to learn and enjoy!

Session is around 1-2 hrs. We offer longer term courses. Let us know in advance if you are interested.

I have 5 years professional experience on cocoon and all other other courses we provide. We are working as two retired (and fun! :) ) ladies and love our new hobby.

Worth noting, my English is limited; timing will also depend on my friend who will do the translation.

We are located in the center of Kyrenia, just by the Kyernia Harbour. The gallery has an amazing sea view.

We are actually an Art Gallery. You may also find drawing, Lefkara work, cacoon works, Syrian Hand Craft, Calabash Handwork, ceramics and more. Here are some examples of what you may purchase:
