I am a teacher of Turkish Arts who have graduated Traditional Turkish Arts of Mimar Sinan Fine Art University. We love to host you and teach how to make Turkish marbling paper, Turkish tile painting, Ottoman calligraphy and henna design in our studio with my team. If you will visit Istanbul, please come to us to drinking Turkish tea, talking about life and doing art.
At the 2 hr Ebru Art workshop, we will introduce you to traditional Ebru techniques and materials. Depending on interest, you would be doing 5-8 marbled paper during the workshop and then taking them home for memory and to decorate your house.
What is Marbling Paper?
Turkish Paper marbling is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce patterns similar to marble or other stone, hence the name. The patterns are the result of color floated on either plain water or a viscous solution known as size, and then carefully transferred to a sheet of paper (or other surfaces such as fabric). In Ebru art, you can draw flower figures that are traditional from the Ottoman period BUT the things that you can capable of by using Ebru art is unlimited. All you need is your imagination.
