We looked in on them recently where Ebru artist Serap Siper demonstrated her skills in Ebru Art.
Ebru has long been the name given to the authentic Turkish art of paper marbling. From a layman's way of observing and for those not familiar with the art. There is a tray of heavy water onto which colour dyes are added. The dyes stay on top of the water. A sheet of paper is then placed on top and the dyes stick to the paper. The paper is then gently removed and a piece of art is revealed.

Then it was time for group members to try their hands at it. Josie is placing the dyes onto the water using brushes. The dyes are then swirled around to make patterns.
