Silk scarf sampleEbru Rich Silk Designs will holding two workshops at The Arts Barn, in which participants are able to create their own silk scarves using Ebru or Turkish Marbling, a classical water-based marbling technique that produces one-of-a-kind floating pictures.

Liquid paints in a variety of colors are placed on top of a thickened transparent fluid bath, creating a unique color palette, which can then be manipulated to create an endless variety of designs. Designs are created using combs, rakes and hand held styluses. Beautiful patterns and other effects are created by drawing through a second application of paint that is placed directly on top of the first. Finally, a single print of the composed design is transferred to silk.
