This Funzing Experience:
Ebru is a centuries-old tradition, passed down from generation to generation, which captures the moment in which you become one with the paint, the universe and the water.

Join Hayrettin, for a workshop which invites you to experiment with Turkish Ebru Art using traditional techniques - great for anyone looking to have a go at a new form of art. During this, workshop you'll learn about general information, materials and techniques.

Turkish Ebru Art is performed using aqueous natural pigments mixed with ox-gall in a rectangular trough filled with thickened water, traditionally prepared using gum-tragacanth.

Colours are sprinkled using brushes made of rose stalks and horsehair on the surface of the thickened water in the trough. The floating pattern is taken off on paper after being reshaped and retouched using pins, needles and combs.

Regardless of skill level, or the intentions of the artist, Ebru is a deeply personal journey with the artist, materials, movement and time. Ebru is more than just an art form, it is the gathered knowledge, history and mysticism of a deep artistic and cultural journey.

All work created is yours to take home to display or use for another purpose such as for book binding or other projects.
