We've had a great experience learning how to draw on the water in Ebru method, we had a great artistic talk with Mr. Ali the ebru teacher.

very friendly place in a great tourist area if you want to visit the blue mosque and Sultan Ahmet area.

The booking process with Hakan is smooth and easy and we got his confirmation on very quickly in short notice.

This experience is highly recommended by me and my friend that share with me the experience.

Description

Ebru has been used to decorate a variety of surfaces for several centuries. It’s often used as a writing surface for calligraphy, and especially for covers and endpapers in bookbinding. Part of its appeal is that each print is unique.

You can of course draw traditional Ottoman-era flowers, but the designs you can create using the Ebru technique are unlimited. All you need is your imagination!

The patterns are the result of colour floating on either plain water or a viscous solution, which is carefully transferred to a sheet of paper or another surface such as fabric.

Come and experience the sensuous flow of Ebru!

Simply amazing!
This is what you call an actual dervish ceremony. The one you see at bosphorus tours is just for fun. This was actually spiritual. Loved it.
Mezmerizing
This is definitely worth your time and money. An enchanting spectacle and unusual unforgettable music.
Great trip
Our guide was a sweetheart! I was travelling with my mom and the guide was very attentive to her, which made it an easy and memorable trip. He also definitely knows a lot about the city and told us a great deal about Istanbul while we were on the island. This is perfect for companies of 3-5 people. Excellent experience!
