Introduction to Ebru (water/paper marbling) Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
This rare art form is mostly about focusing on the process itself and exploring and experimenting with colours, observing their reactions on water surface rather than product making but still you can expect to create a series of 7-8 ebru papers at the end of the session depending on the time you spend on each of your design.
This workshop will commence with a brief history of ebru and introduction of traditional materials and then continue with the techniques and application process of traditional ebru patterns/ designs and transferring them on paper. In the final round, you will use objects (bamboo fans, coasters, greeting cards etc) to transfer your ebru pattern on. You can frame your finished artworks, make bookmarks or use them in your paper craft projects.
Each participant will have their own tray set-up, it will be a hands-on experience where everyone will get a chance to produce a series of unique ebru artworks, that will reflect their inner vision and creativity. During the session we will learn to create at least six different ebru patterns and their variations:
- Battal Ebru / Stone or Rock Pattern
- Gel-Git Ebru / Tidal Pattern
- Taraklı Ebru / Combed Pattern
- Şal Ebru / Shawl Pattern
- Bülbül Yuvası Ebru / Snail Pattern
- Dalgalı Ebru / Spanish Pattern
