Turkish Ebru was formally inscribed by UNESCO in 2014 as part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, it is an intriguing and historically fascinating art form which dates back hundreds of years and refined by generations of secretive practitioners. To find out more go to History of Ebru.

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.

He would like to pay his deepest respect and gratitude to the Ebru master, Kubilay Dincer. A wonderful human being who has done so much to reinvigorate the art of Ebru and the life force of James Mouland. Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, old friend.
