Paper marbling art classes and workshops are run by James from his Hotwalls studio,Portsmouth.
James specialises in paper marbling and traditional Turkish Ebru, he applies it to a range of products including silk scarves.
Turkish Ebru was formally inscribed by UNESCO in 2014 as part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. James is very proud to be playing his part in establishing an Ebru art renaissance, ensuring future generations know the art and adventure of painting on water.
"After a warm welcome from James Mouland, my nine year old grandson and I settled down to our marbling session feeling relaxed and keen. He got us participating in a short time without the kind of ponderous lecture that gets one impatient to start. Thereafter he led us through the basic steps with great patience and a professional lightness of touch which engendered confidence. Our two-hour session (sharing a tray) flew by and we both loved it and the results we got. James is personable, engaging and considerate and one senses his vast experience in this exquisite art of Turkish marbling. Really a 5 star experience in every respect and great value for money. Many thanks."
