After going to the Topkapi Palace and seeing the fine examples of Turkish marbled paper adorned with a tulip design, you can walk down the hill by the palace walls to Sengular Travel and take a class in Ebru (Turkish Marbling). My husband and I discovered Les Arts Turcs on a trip to Istanbul last October and we spent an afternoon in private instruction with our amazing teacher Betul. We were so pleased with the results that we scheduled yet another class on a return trip in May. Betul is so talented and most important she is patient; you will be amazed to discover your hidden talents as she demonsrates each technique and then guides you as you do it yourself. Betul and her husband Ali are so hospitable and friendly and they create a perfect atmosphere to learn this new skill. We are not artists, but by the end of class we had created several frame-worthy Ebru prints that will always remind us of our time in Istanbul. I highly recommend this experience!
