What to expect
This is the same place as Discover Istanbul and Turkey with Serif Yenen and Team. Watch as the instructor creates marbled patterns using color pigments, oily water and paper, as you learn about the history of the art form. The technique has UNESCO World Heritage Intangible Cultural Heritage status, having been used by Seljuk and Ottoman artists to decorate Imperial documents. Today, it is mostly used as a background for calligraphy and to decorate the insides of book covers. Experiment and produce your own marbled effects using the supplied tools. Have fun developing your skills and learn the secrets to make richer and more intricate patterns. Break for tea, coffee and cookies, and then develop your work as your 2-hour workshop progresses. After your class, take home your own unique pieces of art as mementos to display at home.

Trust your Istanbul Experience with guidance of Serif Yenen
Sep 2019
If you want to get the most out of a week long stay in the majestic city of Istanbul then you must enlist the assistance of Serif Yenen. The group I was with spent an entire week with him and all agree that he was excellent!!!!

I strongly suggest that anyone interested in art should try out the Ebru class. The room was filled with laughter as our instructors attempted to teach of this fascinating technique.

Highlight of our Istanbul trip
Aug 2019
With so much to see and do in Istanbul, it’s easy for an itinerary to get jam-packed and hectic. The two-hour private Ebru workshop with Fatma and Serif was the perfect counterpoint to the bustle of the city. Recommended for the entire family - Fatma was so patient and gentle with our young daughter, and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. We also came home with the best souvenirs possible: art that we had made ourselves, using traditional Turkish techniques. Ebru produces such magical results, it’s hard not to come home with something beautiful.
