ABOUT THE ARTIST

Bade is an Art of Marbling Artist, she has been working as a ‘Marbling Instructor’ since she graduated from the Dokuz Eylul University Graduate School of Fine Arts, Textile and Fashion Design Department in Turkey in 2008. Her workshops always receive excellent feedback and are always incredibly popular around Yorkshire.

Bade Kafadar will be guiding participants of all ages through the process of this ancient technique.

Originally from the Orient but later refined in Europe by the Turks the process enables paper to be floated on the surface of water to lift off patterns of paint pre-formed there. During the 16th century marbled paper travelled into Western Europe along the developing trade routes and was used for calligraphy, to border manuscripts and frame drawings and paintings. So now is the chance, whatever your age, to try marbling for yourself.
