Ebru: The Art of Marbling with Bade Kafadar
Saturday, 21 September 2013 from 14:00 to 16:00 (BST)
Leeds, United Kingdom
Marbling is an ancient craft that has captivated Turkish sultanas and French peasants, Japanese emperors and Victorian bookbinders.
When you first learn how to do it, you marble everything in your favourite colours and simple patterns. Then you get restless. You begin to experiment with complicated patterns and with colours you’ve never cared about before. One day you realise that your sense of colour has sharpened, that you actually see better.
You notice subtler shades, careful gradations of less obvious hues. You spend all your time thinking about the interplay among colours and the interaction between colour and pattern…
You’re hooked. And marbling still feels like magic-every time…
In connection with our special display showcasing the Society of Bookbinders’ fantastic prize-winning pieces, participants are invited to learn this ancient craft and create their own beautiful patterns with the help of marbling artist Bade Kafadar.
Please book tickets for one session only (2pm or 3pm). Maximum number of tickets per person: 2.
Carers and parents don't have to book tickets for themselves, unless they wish to participate themselves.
This is a very popular workshop and there is a waiting list. If you have booked tickets but are unable to come, please make sure to let us know so we can release your tickets to someone else.
Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0113 34 32 778 at least a day before the workshop.
