Ebru Workshop: Make Your Own Silk Scarf!
Workshop will be led by Richard AldorasiThe art of taking a print from ink floating on water was first developed in Japan and by the 12th century the art of Suminagashi had been established. In the beginning of the 15th Century, the art of marbling would make its entrance into Turkey by way of the Silk Road, where the use of an all watercolor-based art form was developed. 'Ebru,' Turkish for 'cloud,' is a word linked to the ancient beginnings of marbling.
Choosing from a wide variety of colors, liquid paints are placed on top of a thickened transparent fluid bath, creating a unique color palette, which can then be manipulated to create an endless array of designs.
This activity is addictive! Bet you can't make just one!

More About Jenkins Arboretum
Jenkins Arboretum is a privately owned and operated natural arborteum that is open to the public free of charge 365 days per year. H. Lawrence Jenkins established the arboretum on his property as a memorial to his wife, Elisabeth Phillippe Jenkins, who was avid gardener. The Arboretum opened to the public in 1976. Views of the valley all the way to King of Prussia, as well as up-close views of nature can be seen along the 1.2 miles of paved pathways that wind through the 40+ acre site. The property features an education center that was finished in 2010 and five different garden areas, including Rhododendron Collection, Green Ribbon Native Plants®, The Woodland Garden, Wildflower Gardens and a Bog Garden
