What you'll do

Our introduction to Water Marbling is a 1.5 hour workshop where participants will be walked step by step through the process of floating paint on water and transferring it to paper. Participants will each create 4-5 unique pieces to take home with them. Each piece will reflect a traditional pattern with the complexity of the pattern increasing with each piece to help participants build their skills and confidence.

Learn more about Hafiz

Hafiz

Hello! My name is Hafiz and I teach traditional water marbling (Ebru) classes where participants learn how to paint on water and transfer their designs onto paper. My background is in Education and in Islamic Studies, each of which I have received a Masters, and the former which I received a Teaching Excellence Award from the Prime Minister of Canada. It was while I was doing research in Istanbul that I came across the art of water marbling and have been doing it ever since. I founded Turkish Marbling Toronto several years ago as a way to share this amazing form of art with others (as well as a way to save for my upcoming wedding)! Since then I've run workshops at TEDxUTSC, The University of Toronto, the University of MacMaster, the Ismaili Centre Toronto, as well as in smaller settings like cafes and homes.

Where you'll be

Our workshops are a home business so we conduct them out of our lovely home on Sesame Street...and yes I can tell you how to get to Sesame Street! Being run out of a home we try hard to make sure that you feel at home and comfortable. The workshops take place overlooking our large boardgames collection which is also a sight to behold.
