On Sunday, 20 August, highly respected Ebru master Mustafa Inan from Konya gave a master class, which could be attended by all wishing and interested in this ancient art of painting on water. Many people came to learn or just to have a look at the very paintings created on water. Turns out that Ebru art knows no age. With great pleasure and enthusiasm, the master showed numerous interesting techniques of painting on water. The process of preparation as such seemed to be alchemistry – prior to the start the master had been preparing water and paints with the same inspiration and accuracy as a musician tunes his instrument before he plays every piece of music. Master workshop attendees had an opportunity to work individually and under the care and guidance of the master himself. All ebru paints, brushes, water painting tools, ebru water, ebru tubs, and paper were brought from Turkey and are authentic.
According to the feedback from different participants three hours get away from them, that much fascinating it was to practice at the master workshop. Moreover, all the process was accompanied by tender oriental melodies, and even by a touching ney tune, played by another guest from Turkey, the master of calligraphy Nurullah Ozdema, which still greater were deepening everyone into the atmosphere of beauty, creativity and East. While tea and oriental sweets were giving strength to the toilers of brush and paint.
