The Turkish Ministry of National Education will train 16 people who came from 8 different European countries in the scope of the EU Grundtvig Project on the art of water marbling.
Director General of teacher training and education Omer Balibey stated at the introduction meeting of the programme that 16 water marbling course attendants would receive a week long training in Turkey.
The art of water marbling (Ebru) plays a noteworthy role in Turkish art history and is basic to understanding the Turkish concept of beauty. It expresses the Turkish perception of beauty through paper. Water marbling manifests kinds of natural forms, like colourful patterns on water, transferred to paper and fabrics.
