Learn how to paint on water and discover the traditional Turkish art of Ebru! Ebru, also known as water/paper marbling, is the traditional Turkish art of creating colourful patterns by dropping and splashing paints onto a tray of solution with special brushes. Paper or other materials are then dipped into the solution to preserve your pattern onto their surface. Ebru is a mesmerising world that will transport you to a place of zen as you manipulate and transform your paints into intricate patterns that are unique and it’s impossible to replicate. It helps participants to discover their inner vision and discover their inner creativity while easing their anxiety and stress by providing tranquillity to the soul. This rare art form is mostly about focusing on the process itself and exploring/ experimenting with colours on water surface rather than the product but you can expect to obtain a series of at least seven to eight ebru papers at the end of the session, depending on the time you spend for each of your designs. Eda is a professional Ebru artist who has been in Melbourne since 2016. She runs ebru workshops and short-term courses in Melbourne and around Victoria for art lovers who are open to a unique experience of painting on water. Entry Cost All tickets $155
