Ebru Paper Marbling Workshop

This season we are inviting you to meet with Ebru for a calming and mindful introduction to the magical art of painting on water. Ebru - also known as cloud-painting for the way that the paint clouds as it spreads across the water - is an ancient art-form originating in Turkey and dating back to as early as the 15th Century. Of course we’ll be adding a contemporary twist to the outcomes we produce, but the rest of the experience will be as authentic as it gets folks!

ZEN DRAWING WORKSHOP

Wednesday 24th July 2019 / 10:00 to 13:00 / Leith Hill Place

Drawing is about more than simply picking up a pencil - how do I hold it? What marks can it make? What is the difference between a B and a H. This zen drawing workshop has been an absolute hit with our adult learners as it breaks down a vocabulary of marks into a simple format to help us better understand just what our pencil can do and what to do with it!
