fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The Paper Marbling Ebru class was one of my favorite experiences in Istanbul. I loved getting to visit the art studio and watch and learn from Tuzin. She took time with each of us to teach us different types of marbling techniques and styles, and now I have beautiful pieces of art to take home to commemorate the month!
