Ebru Art at Kingwood Library

The Kingwood Library held a special SAGE program on Tuesday June 6th featuring a live Ebru demonstration with Artist Nihal Sonmez of the Islamic Arts Society. What is Ebru? describes it as "the traditional Turkish art of creating colourful patterns by sprinkling and brushing colour pigments onto a pan of oily water and then transferring the patterns to paper. Known as marbling, this art is commonly used for decoration in the traditional art of bookbinding."

Event attendees heard a brief history of Islamic arts and then watched as Ms. Sonmez demonstrated how to marble an image of a rose. Later, participants had the opportunity to create and marble images themselves!  It was a fun, enjoyable, and educational morning.
