Handcrafts course 'Ebru'

 

What is Ebru Art? Exploring the Ancient Techniques of “Painting on Water”

Handcaft 'EBRU' started to not to be forgotten traditional turkish handcrafts at schools in KÖŞK 

Ebru painting is  distinctive genre of aqueous art used to produce mesmerizing works. Particularly popular in Turkey  , Ebru paintings are produced using dyes, a water-based solution, and a set of unique tools. Like printmaking, Ebru works of art are created by transferring designs, patterns, and motifs onto sheets of paper, fabric, and other canvases.

Due to the streaked and swirled aesthetic of the finished product, the Ebru art form is also known as “paper marbling.”

Process

To create an Ebru painting, the artist employs a unique process unlike that of any other art form.

First, the artist mixes water with pigment and kitre, a natural gum, to produce a dye.

The dye is then added to the surface of the size, a cellulose solution, and an awl is used to manipulate the colors into designs and patterns.Once the artist has completed this one-of-a-kind “painting” process, a sheet of paper is carefully placed on top of the size in order to transfer the image.After the sheet is removed from the liquid, it is left to dry.And here! A marbled masterpiece is produced.

This kind of course is at the center of our adult's attention and they demand from us. It is being given in our Aydın Köşk Public Education center.
