Living Legends: Block Printing and Turkish Paper Marbling
Like in our country, traditional handicrafts have lost out to technology and industry an deven some of them have changed or destroyed in or city. We enable the participants to improve their hand skill and to create their own production with Block Printing and Turkish Paper Marbling that fights to survive despite all these negative effects.
Block Printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking and has been around for thousands of years. Turkish Paper Marbling is a technique of transferring color to paper without using a paintbrush. Block printing and Turkish Paper Marbling are also an excellent way to produce a something that is truly handmade, but can be very easily replicated.
