Art of Ebru: Turkish Marbled Paper Making Workshop


Turkish Coffee Lady organizes many events during the year. One of them was this special workshop about paper marbling from a very talented ebru artist, Ms. Sabiha Ozgur.

Paper marbling is a method of aqueous surface design which can produce patterns similar to marble or other stone.
