A workshop which invites you to learn about the art of marbling – learn how to make marbling by traditional Ebru techniques with Bade Kafadar.
Colours are sprinkled using hand made brushes made of rose stalks and horsehair, on the surface of the special thickened water in the trough. The floating pattern are taken off on paper after being reshaped and retouched using pins, needles and combs. Marbling can intrigue an adult for a lifetime.
This workshop will be for a small group, watching Bade’s demonstrations and then having a go yourself. At first you marble in your favourite colours and in simple patterns. Then you begin to experiment and try out more complicated patterns and with colours you’ve never cared about before….You’re hooked! And marbling still feels like magic every time.
Due to limitations of equipment, you can expect a little waiting and watching but there will be no more than 8 people.
Please bring along an apron and remember to wear clothes which you don't mind getting a little dirty.
