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.
