Ebru Art Workshop

Poliglotía. Arte Ebru con Meral Gokcek

In this workshop we will look at Ebru art, a traditional Turkish artform classed as Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2014 by UNESCO. Ebru flourished and developed into what we know it as today right in the heart of the Ottoman Empire, as a catalyst for all the intercultural riches of the time.

Ebru art is made with drops of natural ink on water. Those who take part in the workshop will experiment with different traditional techniques in which water acts as a canvas on which the paint expands. This is how the unique and unrepeatable drawings and patterns are achieved, simply because it is the movement that we give to the water which ends up defining the shape of each design. It has also been practiced as a meditative artform.

The workshop will be led by Turkish artist Meral Gokcek, coordinator of Ebru-Valencia. This activity is included in the Poliglotía program.
