About the event

In this workshop, you will learn how to make stunning marbled patterns over 100% silk scarves using the technique of Ebru, also known as Marbling. It is a traditional Turkish art that involves floating pigments on water and transferring them to paper or fabric. You will discover the history and principles of Marbling, and how to prepare and use the materials and tools. You will also get to experiment with different colors, patterns, and effects to create your own masterpiece.

What the workshop will cover;

- Brief history of ebru art

- Review of the tools & materials used for fabric marbling

- Information about pre-treatment process of your fabric for marbling

- Information about preparing the marbling “size” (viscous solution)

- The technique and application process of the paints for creating unique designs on the size surface

- Transferring marbled patterns onto fabric

- Information about the finished product process

In this one and a half hour workshop, you will learn how to create mesmerising abstract patterns on fabric. We will first start with a few examples of paper marbling to become familiar with the process and then proceed with fabric pieces. Each participant will have their own trays (30x40cm) and one piece of small sized fabric (28x28cm).

There will also be a large size tray which will give the opportunity to create one 180x45cm pure silk scarf for each participant.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced artists alike. You can work individually or with a partner, and you will get to take home one silk scarf that you have made yourself. You can wear them, gift them, or display them as works of art. The choice is yours!

What to wear

Wear old clothes & old shoes as it can become a little messy 😊

Note: Marbled fabric pieces probably won't dry on the same day so you may need to collect them at a later date or they can be posted to you.

Cancellation Policy: If you need to cancel your workshop registration, please do so at least 48 hours in advance. This is because I must prepare materials and reserve spaces for each workshop, which has a very limited capacity. I apologise for any inconvenience, but I cannot issue refunds for cancellations made within 48 hours of the workshop date. In that case, you can send someone in your place.
