Bade is an Art of Marbling Artist, she has been working as a ‘Marbling Instructor’ since graduating from the Dokuz Eylul University Graduate School of Fine Arts, Textile and Fashion Design Department in Turkey in 2008.

Through several centuries, people have applied marbled materials to a variety of surfaces. The art of traditional Ebru marbling is a method of surface design, which can produce patterns similar to smooth marble or other kinds of stone. These patterns are the result of colour floated on either plain water or a viscous solution and then carefully transferred to an absorbent surface, such as paper or fabric.

Bade thinks that marbling can intrigue an adult for a lifetime – first marbling everything within reach in your favourite colours and in simple patterns. Then you get restless. You begin to experiment with complicated patterns and with colours you’ve never cared about before.

Her workshops always receive excellent feedback and are always incredibly popular around Yorkshire.
