We will start by introducing ourselves and a quick tour of our gallery. After some theoretical and historical information about Paper Marbling (Ebru Art), we will get acquainted with the materials, 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 do not need to have any prior knowledge of this art form and everyone is welcome. At the end of the Paper Marbling experience, each participant will be given a hand-written copy of their names written in Arabic calligraphy as a gift, which is another one of our expertise areas. You will also be able to take with you all the artwork you have created. We will be ready to take your pictures while you are performing this experience and share them with you so you can show it to your friends. Free snacks, coffee & tea will be offered throughout the experience.
This beautiful art form is included in the UNESCO Cultural Heritage List. Feel free to reach us for additional time-slots. I founded the Rumi Art Center (Rumi Kunst Instituut) in Rotterdam, where my daughter Nur and I promote and teach traditional art forms for over 10 years. We have participated in numerous prestigious exhibitions around the world to promote these spiritual art forms. Our activities were visited by public figures such as Eberhard van der Laan (ex-Mayor of Amsterdam) and the Dutch Queen Beatrix.
Variety of snacks Selection of cookies, desserts and chocolates will be available
Coffee, Tea, Water Free and unlimited coffee, tea and water will be provided
Art supplies Any art supply to be used will be provided.
We will be having the experience at our gallery which offers a relaxing atmosphere. Our gallery was founded more than 10 years ago and attracts all kind of visitors from different countries. It is a multi-cultural environment and helps connect different cultures through art.
The experience takes 2 hours and running over the time slightly is no issue. We will be providing protective clothes to avoid paints getting on your clothes. Feel free to reach us for any questions :)
