WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

The two day workshop will introduce you to ‘Ebru’ art with the traditional education model used in Istanbul. This is a practical introduction to Ebru/Marbling and provides participants a step-by-step guide to create their own unique Ebru artworks by using traditional tools. Additionally, students will be shown the similarity between Japanese marbling 'Suminagashi' and Turkish marbling 'Ebru' and will be learned what are the traditional techniques in 'Ebru' and 'Suminagashi'.

Firstly, the participants will learn how to drop paints into water and then harmonise them to create an image. The teacher will demonstrate first and then the participants will get to practice. After all participants will be able to experience 6 or 7 different types of marbling patterns during the 2 day workshop.

The workshop is open to anyone who has an interest in Marbling art and no previous knowledge is required but participants with prior experience of Ebru/ Marbling are also welcome to attend.

However, its said this type of art was originated in Central Asia and it’s called [Abru ( surface of water)] or [Ebri ( Clouds)] in Iran.

In 17th Century, Ebru was spread in Europe as Turkish paper.Ebru is commonly used for decoration in binding and in backgrounds of Calligraphy.
