If we placed all our pencils on top of one another, would they stay balanced? Would you need more materials to keep them stable? In this workshop we will learn about scales and weighing machines and explore the materials used by architects and engineers in the past. After an online guided tour of the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Collection of Anatolian Weights and Measures, we will design durable structures that can stand upright, using toothpicks and colored play dough.
Toothpicks (50 pieces)

The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.
