Marbling Art Class: Traditional Turkish Ebru

Learn how to paint on water and create a series of mesmerising artworks!



2.5 hours Class size 1 to 10

label $180 (or 4 payments of $45 Afterpay)

Looking for unique Sydney activities? Discover the mesmerising art of Ebru at this fun painting class with Eda Tevrizci!

Ebru, also known as marbling art, is UNESCO heritage-listed Turkish art of water marbling. Colourful patterns are created by dropping and splashing paints onto a tray filled with a viscous solution with special brushes.

These patterns are then transferred to a piece of paper or fabric. It’s a mesmerising, magical experience due to the nature of the used materials. The end result of this work actually looks like the magic itself, since each pattern is unique and impossible to replicate.

The class will begin with a brief history of Ebru and introduce the traditional materials and techniques used, including how the solution and paints are prepared and how they are applied to create patterns before transferring them onto paper.

For your final printing, we will use non-paper objects such as Bamboo fans or coasters.

During the session we will learn how 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

Please note: The artworks will need to dry overnight so they will need to be collected the following day or they can be posted to you for an additional cost.


Knowledge required
Absolutely no prior knowledge or skills required - this class is perfect for beginners!
 
What you'll get
  • You will have your own tray set-up and will get a hands-on experience where everyone will get a chance to produce a series of unique Ebru artworks.
  • You will take home a series of at least seven to eight Ebru papers with different patterns and a marbled object to use at home or give someone as a one-of-a-kind present like a coaster set, bamboo fan, notebook etc.
What to bring
There is no need to bring anything, everything will be supplied including tea and coffee making facilities.

Marbling Art Class: Traditional Turkish Ebru review by Leone McLaughlin

Sheela Alphonso May 2022


As always, Made By Me ran a fantastic workshop with expert ebru artist Eda as the instructor. I loved learning some of the history of Turkish ebru, as well as our instructor's personal history with this artwork. All materials were provided and were of great quality (one of the big reasons I keep coming back to Made By Me for my art/craft inspiration). I got to learn several techniques that produced different marbling patterns and was really well guided by the teacher. It was a wonderful morning spent making and creating and learning a new art, as well as meeting some lovely people.

I enjoyed the Ebru class a lot. Eda was knowledgeable and friendly. She took her time to explain ebru art and answered our questions patiently. Her husband Cemal was also very kind and helpful.

The venue was clean and cozy. It was worth my time and money. Highly recommended.
