What you'll do

Firstly I will give theoretical and historical information about Marbling-Ebru. I will show the essential principles (some motifs, patterns) and tools that we use while making Ebru followed by couple of demonstrations.

At this point you will start experimenting with this fascinating art form by yourself with our guidance as needed. You will have the opportunity to creat your own Ebru art starting from the simplest patterns to the most elaborate ones.

And If you wish our workshop will not be focused on traditional marbling technique. in addition to the traditional Ebru art, we can apply marbling spirit into the ceramic and stones, wood, fabric, leather and several object types. We can expand into the several areas of our lifes with some accesories and objects which can be used in daily life.

You will leave with your beautiful and unique arts to decorate the walls of your wonderful homes or offer them to your loved ones!

I am sure that my workshop will be great and extraordinary experience during your Turkey visit.

In my workshop, everything will be %100 natural. You can be sure that using materials has no chemical.

To immortalise this great experience, we will be taking your photos.

Meet your host, Şebnem

Host on Airbnb since 2020
  • Identity verified
I was born in 1970 in Istanbul. I am a mum, a wife and also retired banker. I have started my art adventure by voluntarily painting with oil painting, watercolor and acrylic beside charcoal pencil drawing. Because of my work in the bank those days, I have ended my all classes (based on the training programs in Istanbul Metropalitan municipality) about painting arts. I radically decided that I should find my own way and i said “I will do painting on the water”.

After my all valuable training periods of time in municipality and efficent amateur experiences around Turkey, i founded my own workshop studio which is named “Hayal Teknesi” focusing on marbling art in Istanbul. Since 2008, I am professionally dedicated into the marbling (EBRU) art which is one of the most rooted Turkish/Ottoman traditional arts.
