Ebru Marbling Workshops
Ebru marbling – the ancient Turkish art of marbling paper – gives everybody a chance to make beautiful art.
Symone Dolai taught herself the art during the 2020 Covid lockdown. Friends loved the results so much that Symone has started to offer workshops from her home in Clearwater Bay. So far, she has taught over 50 individuals both young at heart & young of age this highly creative technique. “Each and every piece is completely unique and cannot be replicated,” she says. “It’s just like a thumbprint, one of a kind”. There are many applications you can do with the papers once dried including framed artwork, picture framing, small wrapping papers, bookmarks and more. Workshops are open for booking upon request at her home with a maximum of 3 people per session $200 per person. Birthday packages are also available. Symone 98342365
