How were the clocks we use today invented? What did people use to measure time before that? After a guided online tour of the exhibition, we explore the practices, systems, and measuring tools people have used in different parts of the world, to understand their surroundings through weights and measurements. From there we begin our workshop, where we think about some of the activities we enjoy before creating our own colorful calendar clock.

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
