What you'll do

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 my 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 my 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.

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.
